A robotics system for stereotactic neurosurgery and its clinical application

Proceedings. 1998 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (Cat. No.98CH36146), 1998

This paper introduces the research on robot assisted, minimally invasive neurosurgery. The prototype system developed is composed of a preoperative image-guided planning, the minimal-invasive and noninvasive calibration between the virtual and actual environments, and a surgical robot for location and remote-controlled procedures based on the preoperative strategy. Finally, results of the clinical application are given to show that the robotic ...

A Provocative Test to Determine Brain Compliance in the Management of Patients with Hydrocephalus

2005 IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology 27th Annual Conference, 2006

Non-invasive techniques to explore intracranial compliance and pressure have been extensively explored in recent years. Previous techniques have used expensive technologies to make these measurements, often with difficulty. We present a novel, inexpensive method and algorithm to observe trends in intracranial compliance measurement targeted towards the treatment and management of hydrocephalus. The technique uses two photo-plethysmographic sensors to record arterial ...


Baroreflex control: central mechanisms

Proceedings of 17th International Conference of the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 1995

This is an intentionally provocative and speculative summary of recent literature on neural control mechanisms in baroreflexes, including computational modeling results and functional hypotheses for further investigation. The focus is on nonlinear neuronal mechanisms and connectivity patterns that may underlie experimental observations and that suggest either place coding of pressure or selective processing for dP/dt rather than P.


Finite element analysis of transcranial electrical stimulation for intraoperative monitoring

Proceedings of the IEEE 31st Annual Northeast Bioengineering Conference, 2005., 2005

Transcranial electrical stimulation (TES) is an important intraoperative monitoring procedure. When neurosurgery is performed at certain difficult locations within the central nervous system (CNS), TES evaluates CNS functions during surgical manipulations to prevent post-operative complications. However, the parameters currently utilized in TES are usually experimentally determined which may not be optimal. We have constructed a finite elements model to analyze ...

    Non-invasive techniques to explore intracranial compliance and pressure have been extensively explored in recent years. Previous techniques have used expensive technologies to make these measurements, often with difficulty. We present a novel, inexpensive method and algorithm to observe trends in intracranial compliance measurement targeted towards the treatment and management of hydrocephalus. The technique uses two photo-plethysmographic sensors to record arterial pulse perfusion, a common tilt table apparatus to methodically and artificially increase intracranial pressure, and a digital signal processing algorithm to determine phase difference between the waveforms. A secondary phase-difference disease signature approach is also hypothesized

  • Finite element analysis of transcranial electrical stimulation for intraoperative monitoring

    Transcranial electrical stimulation (TES) is an important intraoperative monitoring procedure. When neurosurgery is performed at certain difficult locations within the central nervous system (CNS), TES evaluates CNS functions during surgical manipulations to prevent post-operative complications. However, the parameters currently utilized in TES are usually experimentally determined which may not be optimal. We have constructed a finite elements model to analyze TES based on a 2D volume conductor model. A realistically shaped simulation domain is constructed by taking the inhomogeneous electrical conductivity values of different tissues into account. Laplace's equation is numerically solved with a set of appropriately selected boundary conditions using the finite element method. Our simulation has yielded clear maps of potential and current distributions within the intracranial space, providing valuable information to optimize the TES procedure.

  • Time-frequency distributions of subdural EEG at epileptic seizure onset

    A high-frequency signal occurring at epileptic seizure onset is investigated using time-frequency methods. This signal is extracted from the background activity by repeated forward and inverse Gabor transformations. The generation sites of this signal are determined by displaying the average signal power values with a 3-D anatomical image obtained from MRI scans.

  • Medical Robotics and the Operating Room of the Future

    Medical robotics is an evolving field with a relatively short history and limited market penetration, although some recent systems have shown some commercial success. Nevertheless, medical robotics shows great promise for improving patient care and may become a key component in the operating room of the future (ORF), where high technology equipment will be integrated with medical imaging. This paper gives an overview of the medical robotics field and summarizes a recent ORF workshop in which participants concluded that standards are critical for an integrated approach
