Scientific Activities

MediCIS - UMR U1099 LTSI activities concern the development of new information science algorithms dedicated to the study of modeling approaches for model guided surgery and interventions. It aims at improving surgical quality by means of surgical decision support and surgical skill evaluation and training.

General Methodological Objectives

Our approach for surgical decision support systems Our objective is to study methods for modelling and analysis surgical and interventional knowledge and processes allowing the development of a new generation of computer assisted surgical (CAS) systems with full decision-making support. In this context, we are addressing the general problems of conception of the surgical room of the future. We address the issue of modelling through two complementary approaches: numeric with data fusion inspired approaches and symbolic with conceptual modelling and formal ontologies.

Our approach for surgical skill evaluation and training

Clinical Applications

Cranial and spinal surgery. Functional neurosurgery (such as Deep Brain Stimulation). Surgery of brain tumors. Eye surgery. Laparoscopic surgery.
