08:00 Tutorial on Patient-Specific Model
Tuesday, June 23, 2009
; Estrelsaal A

Heinz U. Lemke, PhD, Technical Univ. of Berlin (D), Volkmar Falk, MD, PhD, Univ. Hosp. Zurich (CH)

The tutorial introduces the concepts and developments needed to move from image guided to model guided therapy. Various modelling methods need to be considered with patient specific, workflow and interaction models as the keys for enabling this process. They include geometric, functional, tissue and implant/instrument modelling as well as the interaction between information entities using, for example, Multi-Entity Bayesian Networks (MEBN’s) and Probabilistic Relational Models (PRM’s). Important aspects of model management IT architectures, such as the Therapy Imaging and Model Management System (TIMMS), and appropriate standards are also presented. Finally, a number of examples, in particular from cardiovascular, but also from liver, head and neck, orthopaedic and neurosurgery will demonstrate the existing and expected impact of patient specific modelling and related issues on actual patient care.
