Medical imaging

For 15 years, we have been working in close collaboration with the University hospital of Nancy and GE Healthcare in interventional neuroradiology with the aim to develop tools allowing the physicians to take advantage of the various existing imaging modalities on the brain in their clinical practice. As several imaging modalities that bring complementary information on the various brain pathologies are now available in a pre-operative context ( 2D and 3D subtracted angiography, fluoroscopy, MRI,...) our aim is to develop a multi-modality framework to help therapeutic decisions. Recently, we have investigated the use of AR tools for neuronavigation. The aim of the PhD thesis of Sebastien Gorges which ended in May 2007 was to design tools for neuronavigation that take advantage of a real-time imagery (fluoroscopy) and a pre-operative 3D imagery (3D angiography). We are currently involved in the SOFA project with the ALCOVE team and the University hospital of Nancy. Our aim is to develop simulation tools of the interventional act adapted to the patient's anatomy and physiology, in order to help the surgeon with planning the coil placement, rehearsing the therapeutic gesture, and to provide new tools to improve the medical training to the technique.
