  • Publication number: 20170007333
    Abstract: This system comprises means (9) for determining a position of a first portion of a medical instrument in the body of a subject at a determination time, and means (11) for displaying an image of the first portion in the determined position. The determination means (9) comprise an imaging module (15) that is capable of acquiring, at an acquisition time that precedes said determination time, a position of the first portion, a detection module (17) for detecting a movement of a second portion of the medical instrument between said acquisition and determination times, and a determination module (19) for determining the position of the first portion (3d) at said determination time, from said position of the first portion at said acquisition time and from said movement of the second portion.

  • Publication number: 20080020362
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus provide realistic training in endovascular and endoluminal procedures. One embodiment includes modeling accurately the tubular anatomy of a patient to enable optimized simulation. One embodiment includes simulating the interaction between a flexible device and the anatomy and optimizing the computation. One embodiment includes replicating the functionality of therapeutic devices, e.g. stents, and simulating their interaction with anatomy. One embodiment includes computing hemodynamics inside the vascular model. One embodiment includes reproducing visual feedback, using synthetic X-ray imaging and/or or visible light rendering. One embodiment includes generating contrast agent injection and propagation through a tubular network. One embodiment includes reproducing aspects of the physical environment of an operating room by simulating or tracking, such as C-arm control panel, foot pedals, monitors, real catheters and guidewires, etc.

  • Publication number: 20050142525
    Abstract: A surgical training system includes a tracking system for tracking the position of one or more instruments during a training procedure and objectively evaluating trainee performance based upon one or more metrics using the instrument position information. Instrument position information for the training procedure can be compared against instrument position information for an expert group to generate standardized scores. Various training object can provide realistic haptic feedback during the training procedures.
