National Institutes of Health Awards Kitware Over $600,000 to Develop Advancements in Neurosurgical Simulation
Date:3/14/2010

edical Computing, Kitware is part of the nation’s core effort to build a computational infrastructure for biomedical computing.

Historically, simulation has over-emphasized needle insertion and failed to address requirements of surgeons-in-training on potential caseloads. Existing simulators do not ably reconcile the conflicting clinical requirements of neurosurgery; their underlying models are insufficiently sparse to resolve large tissue displacements and they are insufficiently descriptive of critical tissues at risk in each intervention.

Kitware will set out to prove that for interactive neurosurgery simulation to be relevant and technically feasible, the following has to occur:

 
  • Anatomical modeling must be sufficiently descriptive in intra-surgical motion and tissue morphology;
  • Biomechanics must be faithful to tissue response;
  • Haptics must afford multi-tool interaction;
  • And the system must meet clinical requirements reflecting the specific surgical approach and pathology.

Kitware’s Insight Segmentation and Registration Toolkit (ITK) will be used to produce a descriptive and patient-specific application modeling brain anatomy, requiring innovations in segmentation, registration and meshing; VTK for interactive visualization; and expand Kitware’s new Vessel Toolkit. This project will also build on Kitware’s expertise in GPU programming and haptics. Through this proposed work, Kitware will expand its leadership in computer vision towards advancements for photorealistic rendering in surgery simulation, as well as pursue research in medical ontologies.
