||Geometry for Anatomy Workshop at Banff
International Research Station. The Geometry for Anatomy workshop was
held from August 28th to September 2nd, 2011 at BIRS. Researchers from
the fields of computer graphics, computer vision, image processing,
visualization, and medical imaging, as well as clinicians and industrial
representatives were invited for a meeting of minds through invited
talks, panel discussions, and brainstorming sessions, under the unifying
theme of geometry for anatomy. The workshop was organized by Ghassan
Hamarneh and Richard Zhang (from SFU) and Prof. Steve Pizer from (UNC
Chapel Hill). [link].
CS Seminar: Use of 3D Ultrasound Imaging in Diagnosis,
Treatment and Research. Prof. Aaron Fenster, Scientist and Director of
the Imaging Research Laboratories, Robarts Research Institute (Ontario).
||Medical research captures 3D images
during surgery. Associate Professor Ghassan Hamarneh from SFU Computing
Science is leading a research project to benefit surgeons and their
patients. His research team aims to bring the rich details of
pre-operative medical images to surgeons who perform robotic surgeries
by capturing and utilizing dynamic, 3D images indicating changes in a
patientís body during the course of an operation. [more]
