报告题目：Image guided intervention and robotic assistance
报告人：Dr. Li Ming (李铭 博士 NIH 生物工程部 主任)
In this talk, I will introduce our work on image guided cardiac intervention and other abdomen interventions. I will first present our work on the transapical aortic valve implantation (TAVI) under MRI guidance: devices, methods, feasibility study and long term results. In addition I will detail the surgical assistant robotic system developed for TAVI procedure, including the MRI compatible robotic valve delivery module, the registration method and the user-machine interfaces that suit the needs at the different phases of the procedure. I will also introduce our pioneer work on cone beam CT thermometry for temperature monitoring during liver ablation therapy.
