MedGadget Interview: A Surgeon’s Simulator (Video Interview at The White House)

From the Article…

At the White House event, Dr. Selman gave an excellent talk about the platform while Dr. Sloan demonstrated it. We caught up with them right after for this Medgadget exclusive interview.

Surgical Theater, whose slogan is “pre-living the future,” aims to revolutionize the way surgeons prepare for operations by enabling them to simulate the surgery on real patient data obtained through imaging studies. According to the press release, Surgical Theater’s main product offering is the Surgery Rehearsal Platform (SRP), which:

Discovery News: 3-D Imaging Lets Brain Surgeons Rehearse

From the article…

Built by a company called Surgical Theater, the system employs CT and MRI scans and software to build up a three-dimensional image of the brain. A doctor can call up the image on a desktop and get a much better look at the shape and location of the aneurysm. The system can also link to the microscopes used during the surgery, sending the image to the doctor as the operation proceeds. It gives a look at the “back” of the blood vessel. “It’s kind of like seeing the dark side of the moon,” said Warren Selman, neurosurgeon-in-chief of University Hospitals who will be directing the trial there.

Nextgov: White House Unleashes ‘Innovation Mojo’ of Broadband Providers, Developers

From the Article…

President Obama signed an executive order Thursday aimed at linking high-speed broadband Internet providers and application developers with communities to design and test new applications in medicine, engineering and other fields.

The idea behind the U.S. Ignite program is to use the broadband communities as test beds to develop applications that eventually can be scaled nationwide, according to a White House blog post.

During a launch event, researchers at Case Western Reserve University demonstrated a broadband-based simulated surgical theater, which they said could eventually be used at broadband-equipped medical schools across the country.

Healthcare IT News: IT enables giant leap in surgery simulation

From the article…

Surgical Theater is a new company that began with a chance encounter between co-founders Warren Selman, MD, a Cleveland neurosurgeon, and Moty Avisar, who was working at Lockheed-Martin on an advanced flight simulator for the Israeli Air Force.

“We were using satellite images of the next day’s mission to let pilots ‘pre-live’ it,” said Avisar. “Dr. Selman was looking for that kind of capability in the operating room, so we created a system that turns a patient’s CT and MRI scans into highly realistic, 3D images.”
