Section: Overall Objectives
At the end of 2011, a part of Inria team SHACRA moved from Lille to Strasbourg to join the newly created Institute of Image-guided Surgery (IHU) whose main objective is to develop novel clinical technologies at the crossroads of laparoscopic surgery, flexible endoscopy, and interventional radiology. Similar institutes have been created in the past decade around the world with the same global objective: to create a synergy between clinicians and scientists to develop new technologies that can redefine healthcare with a strong emphasis on clinical translation.
The global objective of research team MIMESIS is to create a synergy between clinicians and scientists to develop new technologies that can redefine healthcare, with a strong emphasis on clinical translation. To achieve this goal, we have joined IHU and we collaborate with numerous partners in both academic and private domain.
The scientific objectives of the team MIMESIS are related to this ambitious objective. Over the past years we have developed new approaches supporting advanced simulations in the context of simulation for training. We now propose to focus our research on the use of real-time simulation for per-operative guidance. The underlying objectives include numerical techniques for real-time computation and data-driven simulation dedicated to patient-specific modeling. This last topic is a transversal research theme and raises several open problems, ranging from non-rigid registration to augmented reality.
