26.08.2019 - 30.08.2019
Clinical experts and users will explain their views and expectations regarding innovative computer-assisted technologies as well as the current state of progress in clinical practice and research. Both successful developments and negative examples will be addressed and the advantages and disadvantages for therapeutic medicine set out. Moreover, the technical background of innovative infrastructure and technical standards will be examined, and various architectures, frameworks and communication technologies for computer assisted interventions in the digital operation room explained.
The educational concept of the summer school provides for the strong interdisciplinary dovetailing of medical and technical aspects in a manner which is unique in the global technology landscape. Accordingly, the summer school will be organized in daily modules each devoted to a different topic and divided into lectures, visits and hands-on sessions. In addition it is also planned to establish workshops, in which the participants put their own research fields under discussion.
This broad combination of teaching methods involving the close integration of theory and practice will give participants an intensive insight into many different aspects of computer-assisted surgery. Particular attention will be paid to achieving a sound balance between theoretical teaching, opportunities for participants to try out what they have learned, providing demonstrations of clinical practice and as individual workshops.
Planned practical demonstrations will take place at the following laboratories and operating rooms:
- Integrated operating room (Leipzig University Hospital – ENT)
- ZEEGO Hybrid-OR (Heart Center Leipzig)
- MRI Cardiac Catheter Lab (Heart Center Leipzig)
- Tumor board (Liver Cancer Center Leipzig)
