Paper Abstract

Computer-assisted surgery technology relies heavily on multi-modality medical image and multimedia information. To systematically manage this information is a challenging task due to fast information growth and geographical expansion of the computer-assisted surgery (CAS) field. After many years developing image-guided surgery techniques, types and media of information are rapidly growing. CAS can grow from a traditional single suite containing only one operating room with a workstation, to a distributed CAS center that can include multiple operating rooms and a control room in order to distribute CAS service throughout a large medical center or an entire metropolitan area. This expansion increases the sophistication of information management or CAS significantly. This paper first identifies different types of multi-modality information and multimedia information involved in the CAS field, and then presents strategies and methods of managing this information. We discuss our CAS system developed at Wayne State University. Detroit Medical Center as a typical example.
