--- From the breakout instructions:

  • Identify 3 main challenges in this area along with clear motivations
  • Identify 3 specific problems that can be solved by a collaborative effort between academic and industry partners
  • Identify a problem that the NCIGT can help address in the next year
  • Identify a list of keywords for image guidance and the specific breakout area

Agenda

  • Classification of robot systems based on complexity:
    • positioning a needle guide
    • telesurgery/haptics
    • real-time tracking of organ motion
    • others?
  • What hardware is available for research:
    • daVinci with research interface
    • Open architecture industrial robots
    • Build your own
  • Resources to help researchers develop systems:
    • Online database of components (motors, sensors, controllers) that others have used, including user comments/ratings, with special section for MR compatibility?
    • Open source software for robot control?
    • Anything else?
  • Safety design
    • Are there any standards?
    • How about best practices?
  • Integration with other systems:
    • Intraoperative imaging (CT, MR, fluoro, US, microscope, ...)
    • Navigation/tracking systems
    • Open source packages such as VTK, ITK, 3D Slicer, IGSTK, ...
  • Connectivity standards/middleware
    • Data throughput and latency
    • A real issue for some systems, especially if doing real-time tracking
  • Shortcomings of current technologies in the clincal context
  • Future research needs and applications
