5. MIDAS: Medicam Image Display and Analysis System

Prof. Stephen Aylward (aylward@unc.edu, 962-1799)

Abstract

I propose the development of a 3D surgical cutting-path specification tool. We have a way of displaying organs and vessels in 3D from medical images. The next step is to provide clinicians with a useful tool for displaying those items in 3D and then specifying a cutting path in 3D.

In summary:

There is a great need and interest in many clinical departments for such a tool!

Implementation Notes

The project will be written in C++, use VKT for generating 3D visualizations, and FLTK for user-interface. The project should be cross-platform (VC++ and g++). We have developed applications using such tools in the past.
