INTRAOPERATIVE CLASSIFICATION OF BRAIN TUMORS THROUGH 3D IMMERSIVE MODELS IN THE MADRID COMMUNITY
Project ID: Y2018/BIO-4826, funded by the community of madrid through the synergic R&D project program (2018)
To build a 3D intraoperative diagnostic system which combines hyperspectral, magnetic resonance and ultrasound imaging to devise future neuronavigation systems
Obtain a system that combines the information generated by the MRI and intraoperative ultrasound systems with the hyperspectral images / videos obtained in the operating room using a camera array. This will contribute to the development of the first 3D system based on the fusion of hyperspectral images, magnetic resonance images and IOUSS.
NEMESIS-3D-CM will improve current neuronavigation systems, providing neurosurgeons with an immersive 3D model that will help them navigate the brain in virtually real time and decide on the critical task of delimiting brain tumors, cerebral vascular malformations, or the location of cavernous pathologies.
The NEMESIS-3D-CM project combines technological research in hyperspectral image processing, high-performance computing systems and automatic learning techniques with the experience and daily practice of neurosurgeons.
Synergies between Medicine and Engineering
The NEMESIS-3D-CM project, in collaboration with the Fundación para la Investigación Biomédica del Hospital Universitario 12 de Octubre, creates synergies between medical practice and engineering.
Real-Time Brain Tumor Diagnosis
The HPC medical system is based on heterogeneous multiprocessor architectures, to support the systematic part of real-time diagnosis during surgical interventions of brain tumors by providing neurosurgeons with additional information that allows them to increase the accuracy in making critical decisions during the tumor resection procedure.
