MICCAI 2012 Workshop on DBS Methodological Challenges

1 oct. 2012
Acropolis Convention Center - Nice (France)


This MICCAI workshop on DBS methodological challenges aims at establishing a forum for discussing advanced methods for preoperative planning of surgical Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS). During the past decade, this neurosurgical technique has grown in importance for the treatment of movement disorders such as Parkinson's disease. However, planning such interventions still remains difficult, either for defining accurately the location of the anatomical structure to stimulate, determining an optimal position for the electrode, or dealing with brain shift. This workshop aims at gathering researchers and clinicians in various fields such as medical image computing, computer graphics, computational modeling, computer-aided surgical planning, and interventional imaging to discuss the recent advances and the challenges to address to improve the planning and the performance of DBS interventions. It is expected to be a forum of discussion and exchanges between young and experimented scientists and clinicians.
