AutoImplant 2020 - First MICCAI Challenge on Automatic Cranial Implant Design

The aim of this paper is to provide a com- prehensive overview of the MICCAI 2020 AutoImplant Chal- lenge. The approaches and publications submitted and accepted within the challenge will be summarized and re- ported, highlighting common algorithmic …

Synthetic Database of Aortic Morphometry and Hemodynamics: Overcoming Medical Imaging Data Availability

Modeling of hemodynamics and artificial intelligence have great potential to support clinical diagnosis and decision making. While hemodynamics modeling is extremely time- and resource-consuming, machine learning (ML) typically requires large …

Characterization of the Airflow within an Average Geometry of the Healthy Human Nasal Cavity

This study’s objective was the generation of a standardized geometry of the healthy nasal cavity. An average geometry of the healthy nasal cavity was generated using a statistical shape model based on 25 symptom-free subjects. Airflow within the …

Clinical Benefits of Combining Different Visualization Modalities in Neurosurgery

The prevailing philosophy in oncologic neurosurgery, has shifted from maximally invasive resection to the preservation of neurologic function. The foundation of safe surgery is the multifaceted visualization of the target region and the surrounding …

Digital Analysis of Nasal Airflow Facilitating Decision Support in Rhinosurgery

Successful functional surgery on the nasal framework requires reliable and comprehensive diagnosis. In this regard, the authors introduce a new methodology: Digital Analysis of Nasal Airflow (diANA). It is based on computational fluid dynamics, a …

The Healthy Nasal Cavity - Characteristics of Morphology and Related Airflow Based on a Statistical Shape Model Viewed From a Surgeons Perspective

Functional surgery on the nasal framework requires referential criteria to objectively assess nasal breathing for indication and follow-up. This motivated us to generate a mean geometry of the nasal cavity based on a statistical shape model. In this …

Validation of Three Dimensional Models of the Distal Femur Created From Surgical Navigation Point Cloud Data for Intraoperative and Postoperative Analysis of Total Knee Arthroplasty

#### Purpose Despite the success of total knee arthroplasty, there continues to be a significant proportion of patients who are dissatisfied. One explanation may be a shape mismatch between pre- and postoperative distal femurs. The purpose of this …

Shape Aware Surface Reconstruction From Sparse 3D Point Clouds

The reconstruction of an object’s shape or surface from a set of 3D points plays an important role in medical image analysis, e.g. in anatomy reconstruction from tomographic measurements or in the process of aligning intra-operative navigation and …

Development of a computed tomography data-based Vibrant Bonebridge viewer

#### Background Because of the anatomy of the mastoid and the size of the actuator, positioning of the Vibrant Bonebridge B-FMT can be difficult without prior evaluation of the individual computed tomography (CT) scan of the temporal bone. …

Frame Based Cranial Reconstruction

The authors report on the first experiences with the prototype of a surgical tool for cranial remodeling. The device enables the surgeon to transfer statistical information, represented in a model, into the disfigured bone. The model is derived from …
