Wireless network will be available in the room.
MICCAI 2012 workshop on DBS methodological challenges aims at establishing
a forum for discussing advanced methods for preoperative planning, intra-operative placement, and post-operative programming
of surgical Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS).
the past decade, this neurosurgical technique has grown in importance
for the treatment of movement disorders such as Parkinson’s
disease. However, planning and performing such interventions still remain difficult, either for defining accurately the location of the anatomical structure to stimulate, determining an optimal position for the electrode, dealing with brain shift, or determining the optimum stimulator settings.
workshop aims at gathering researchers and clinicians in various
fields such as medical image computing, computer graphics,
computational modeling, computer-aided surgical planning, and
interventional imaging to discuss the recent advances and the
challenges to address to improve
DBS interventions. It is expected to be a forum of discussion and
exchanges between young and experimented scientists and clinicians.
