12.2.2015 “Workflow-based surgical automation”
Invited Talk from Thomas Neumuth – ICCAS Leipzig
The University of Bremen Creative Unit – Intraoperative Information and Fraunhofer MEVIS hosted Prof. Thomas Neumuth from ICCAS (Innovation Center Computer Assisted Surgery) on 12 February at 13:00 in the Cartesium building (Rotunde) at the University of Bremen.
An increasing amount of technology supports the surgeon in the operating room.
Surgical workflow management is an essential method to orchestrate these various technologies for the benefit of the surgical staff.
The talk will introduce examples of workflow-supported surgical work and demonstrate visions for future applications.
Thomas Neumuth is scientific director of the ICCAS-research group “Model-based Automation and Integration” at the Leipzig University and professor at the University of Applied Sciences Leipzig. He received his PhD in medical engineering from the Leipzig University and habilitated in medical informatics.
His research topics include the modeling of processes, workflow management systems, sensor system engineering for situation-dependent information systems in the biomedical engineering.
