Section: Partnerships and Cooperations

Regional Initiatives

At the regional level, the MIMESIS team collaborates with

ICube Automatique Vision et Robotique (AVR)

We have been collaborating with the medical robotics team on percutaneous procedures, in particular robotized needle insertion (with Prof. Bernard Bayle), and needle tracking in medical images (with Elodie Breton). We are also collaborating with Jonathan Vappou on elastography.

ICube Informatique Géométrique et Graphique

MIMESIS joined the IGG team to collaborate in the domain of dynamic topologies, mainly through the use of the CGoGN framework. CGoGN is a C++ library for the manipulation of meshes. It implements combinatorial maps and their multiresolution extensions and has been used in various high level application like the simulation of crowds of autonomous agents and the simulation of cuts, tears and fractures in the context of surgical simulations.

Institute of Image-Guided Surgery (IHU)

We have several active projects and collaborations with IHU Strasbourg in order to collect and use medical images (such as MRI, CT, Fluoroscopy and Ultrasound) before, during and after minimally-invasive surgical procedures (percutaneous, endovascular and laparoscopic). Such images represent an essential support for the development of numerical simulations for intra-operative assistance through augmented and virtual reality. We also collaborate in the field of elastic registration with X-ray images and surgical training for flexible endoscopy.
