Background and Position

pjannin.jpg Pierre Jannin is an INSERM Research Director. From 2012, he has been heading the Inserm Research group MediCIS (Modeling Surgical Knowledge and Processes). He was awarded the PhD degree from the University of Rennes in 1988 on multimodal 3D imaging in neurosurgery. He was awarded the Habilitation in 2005 on Information guided Surgery. He is the President of the International Society of Computer Aided Surgery (ISCAS). He is board member of the MICCAI society. He is senior member of the SPIE society. He is Deputy Editor for the International Journal of Computer Assisted Radiology and Surgery (IJCARS). He is member of several Organizing and Program Committees of international conferences, such as congress organizing committee of CARS, program committee of SPIE Medical Imaging, organizing committee of MMVR, and program committee of MICCAI.

Research areas

dbsa.jpg He has more than 30 years experience in research in the area of computer assisted surgery. He started developing image guided surgery systems for neurosurgery, from stereotactic frame based applications to neuronavigation. The clinical applications he fully or partially developed were or are still used in clinical routine in the Neurosurgery department of Rennes's hospital: frame based stereotactic biopsies using 3D CT and MR since 1994 and with Neuromate robot since 1997, MR and 3D Angiography SEEG depth electrodes implantation since 1998, multimodal neuronavigation since 1999, deep brain stimulation from 2013. His research topics include image guided surgery, multimodal imaging data fusion, augmented reality, modeling of surgical procedures and processes, study of surgical expertise, surgical training and validation in medical image processing and in image guided surgery. The main clinical application areas concern functional neurosurgery and surgery of low grade tumors in central areas. He authored or co authored more than 60 peer-reviewed international journal papers and more than 80 international conferences long papers.
