Seminar: Designs in Computational Surgery: From Customized Implants to Tissue Transplantation
Computational surgery is the application of mathematics and algorithm design, enabling imaging, robotics, informatics, and simulation technologies, incorporating biological and physical principles, to improve surgery. It typically involves removal of abnormal tissues, repair damage structures, replacement and transplantation of organs and tissues, repair disordered functions or even facilitate diagnosis. In this seminar, few of our ongoing projects in computational surgery starting with designing patient-specific craniofacial bone replacements, surgical flaps for tissue transplantation, trachea splint and simulating breast surgery will be presented. How various engineering concepts and principles can be used to address some of the problems will be demonstrated and discussed.
