Forum to focus on using robotics, imaging and simulation in surgeries
Date:1/24/2011

HOUSTON, Jan. 24, 2011 More than a dozen University of Houston (UH) researchers will be making presentations, ranging from robot-assisted surgery techniques to improving heart and breast surgery procedures, at the third annual international conference in computational surgery Jan. 26-28. The symposium will be held at The Methodist Hospital Research Institute (TMHRI) in Houston.

Held at the Methodist Institute for Technology, Innovation and Education (MITIE) in in the new TMHRI building in the Texas Medical Center, "Computing, Robotic and Imaging for Surgery Platform" will provide a forum for new ideas to be exchanged in an interdisciplinary setting between surgeons and computational scientists.

"Computational surgery combines medical imaging, medical robotics, simulations and information technology in surgery. These disciplines are giving rise to a need for a new generation of engineers and scientists able to work with physicians and surgeons to develop new medical practices," said UH computer science professor Marc Garbey, who is co-hosting the conference with Dr. Barbara Bass, a surgeon and chair of the department of surgery at the Methodist Hospital. "This conference addresses the need in medicine for highly skilled collaborators to facilitate the rapid evolution toward computer-assisted surgery."

Presenters and presentations from UH researchers include:

Ioannis Pavlidis, Eckhard Pfeiffer Professor with the department of computer science
Plenary talk: "Fast by Nature How Stress Patterns Define Human Experience and Performance"
11:20 a.m. - noon, Thursday, Jan. 27

Erol Yeniaras, graduate student and research assistant in the department of computer science
Medical Robotic and Surgery Session
"A Cyber-Physical Systems Approach in Integrating Patient, Scanner, Robot and Operator in Image-Guided Robot-Assisted Surgeries"
2:50 - 3:10 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 26
