Surgical Imaging
Date: Tuesday, 25th June 2013

Venue:  Room Number 122, Sir Alexander Fleming Building, Imperial College London, SW7 2AZ

Location: No 33 on the South Kensington Campus Map, available here.
Workshop Aims

A special workshop on robot-guided imaging probes, in conjunction with the 6th Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics, will bring together researchers in academia and industry to exchange ideas on the current state-of-the-art and future trends in surgical robotic imaging procedures and technologies. The workshop will consist of a series of invited talks.
Topics to be covered:
  • Endoscopy and Endomicroscopy (including confocal microscopy and OCT)
  • Surgical ultrasound and other in vivo imaging modalities
  • Robotic assisted sensing and scanning methods and mosaicing
  • Imaging methods with future robot-guided potential
  • Surgical image registration and navigation.
