A virtual liver, a better chance of life
Date:1/8/2010

t it before the end of 2009. SEP Robot was added to the SimSurgery's current Surgical Sim Education Platforms. France Telecom software has been installed in all French regions and will enable surgical teams throughout France to work together. France Telecom has also set up a new commercial system with Orange for medical data communication and distance working.

Better prospects for patients

The products of Odysseus will make a very significant contribution to the accuracy of tumour diagnosis in the liver and its treatment. Once trials and validation are complete, their use will enable more accurate diagnosis of secondary liver tumours so they can be removed completely; and reduce the size of liver segments that need to be resected. Because the success of liver surgery depends on the minimum volume of liver that can safely remain after surgery, accurate knowledge of the topology of the individual liver should significantly increase the number of patients who are eligible for surgery.

Odysseus research has led to a new major research project, Passport, within the EU Seventh Framework Programme. FP7 includes the Virtual Physiological Human initiative, developing tools for modelling and simulation of most human physiology and disease-related processes. Passport, partially funded by the European Commission, will extend the Odysseus prototype software to a professional standard, achieving CE marking in 2010. Passport will add patient-specific biological, mechanical, dynamic and appearance modelling to the geometric modelling. Through Passport, IRCAD has already developed the rendering software further (VR Render) and made it freely available on the internet.

Professor Soler greatly values that Odysseus was a EUREKA project. It was not instrumental in finding partners, as they were already known to each other, but it did enable development of the project with just a few partners, allowing flexibility and efficiency.
