Software and Data Sets

Computer Aided Neurosurgery

Neurosurgery is a complex procedure where the surgeon has to integrate multi-modal data to produce an optimum surgical plan. Many times the region of interest is surrounded by vital structures (such as motor cortex, temporal cortex, vision and audio sensors, etc.) and has irregular configurations. Slight damage to such eloquent brain structures can severely impair the patient.

CADI has developed CASMIL, an image guided neurosurgery toolkit to produce optimum plans resulting in minimally invasive surgeries. This system, originally developed at Wayne State University has many innovative features needed by neurosurgeons that are not available in other academic and commercial systems. CASMIL is an integration of various vital modules, such as rigid and non-rigid co-registration (image-image, image-atlas, and image-patient), 3D segmentation, brain shift predictor (BSP), knowledge based query tools, intelligent planning, and augmented reality.
A video of the demo can be found here. You may need this codec to view the demo. For a demo, please contact Dr. Vipin Chaudhary.



Teleradiology tool

The lab has integrated image analysis algorithms developed as part of CASMIL into a web-enabled teleradiology and remote diagnostics application. Compute intensive image processing analysis is conducted on a server platform, taking advantage of the labs' HPC expertise. The user interaction is through a Java applet running on a web-browser. Please contact Dr. Vipin Chaudhary for a guest login, collaborations and licensing.




Brain and Liver Datasets

CADI has launched several data collection projects, and has made available anotated liver and brain datasets. The data and associated software will be made available to academic institutions free of cost. Please write to Dr. Vipin Chaudhary to obtain a copy of the data.
