Stop the Bleeding! Immersive Simulation for Surgeons (SXSW Panel 2011)

  1. Stop the Bleeding! Immersive Simulation for Surgeons<br />SXSW Interactive 2011 #stopthebleeding<br />John Qualter #biodigitalhuman<br />Frank Sculli #biodigitalhuman<br />Dr. Gregory Wiet #osc<br />Charlene Zvolanek #char74<br />

  6. Simulation facilities are being developed at universities around the world, providing cutting-edge training that benefits surgeons and their patients. <br />
  7. Digital imaging and computing advances have fostered an era of medical surgery simulation. The medical field was the first to exploit volume visualization from CT in craniofacial surgery.<br />
  8. Gaming and simulation have much in common, but have as many differences. For over 20 years video games have given laypeople a way to investigate what it may be like to have their hand on the knife. <br />
  9. Things were different with surgery games in 1991, like Life & Death, for Atari & Amiga<br />
  10. The nature of surgery simulation fosters collaboration between academia, private companies, the military and technology solution providers. Both open and closed source projects coexist and serve the varying needs of each group, with amazing results. <br />
  11. Benefits of surgery simulation <br />for medical professionals<br />Laparoscopic technique training<br />Specific robotic surgery tool training<br />Practice as often as desired, expertise can be achieved far earlier<br />Confidence built through practice allows better performance through skill and mental state<br />Reduce dependence on costly cadaver and animal subjects<br />So much MORE!<br />
  12. Benefits of surgery <br />simulation for patients<br />Less invasive surgeries, with faster <br />recovery<br />Less risk due to extensive practice of surgeons<br />Reduced risk - Patient CT and MRI data loaded into simulation environment allows surgeons to practice a procedure on patient anatomy<br />- Novice surgeons will perform better overall<br />Future: Confidence in your surgeon based on their performance data<br />So much MORE!<br />
  13. Interface design for simulation environments in some ways mirror gaming, but there are specific considerations that must be taken into account.<br />
  14. The practical applications today are just as exciting as the theoretical applications that future innovations will bring – such as truly virtual surgery and monitoring surgeon competency for various procedures over time<br />
  15. Performance measurement and certifications on individual procedures allow superior tracking of surgeon skill and readiness to enter the operating theater.<br />
