One paper titled “Horizon Stabilized – Dynamic View Expansion for Robotic Assisted Surgery (HS-DVE)” which redintroduces missing visual cues to aid the surgeon in navigation. The other is titled “Enhanced Visualisation for Minimally Invasive Surgery” and uses texture synthesis, inpainting and texture mesh paramaterisation methods to improve visualisation of the surgical scene.

The Annals of Surgery. Dec 2010: The co-authored paper “Orientation strategies in Natural Orifice Translumenal Endoscopic Surgery” has been accepted to the Annals of Surgery. This journal has an Impact Factor of 7.9. The work investigates the effect of disorientation in NOTES and strategies for dealing with it.

Vimeo. You can find some of my videos on Vimeo now.

Dataset website now online. The website has 10 endoscopic / laparoscopic datasets including, ex vivo, in vivo, Laparoscopic, Endoscopic, Monocular, Stereo, NOTES, Cardiac, Abdominal, Liver. We provide intrinsic and extrinsic calibration data for the cameras. The idea behind this website is to make medical datasets avaliable to the vision community so researchers don’t need to establish relationships with hospitals, collect data, gain patient consent etc.. More datasets will be added including validataion data.

Signal Processing Magazine review/turorial article . The July 2010 issue of SPM has our review/tutorial article on using endoscopic/laparoscoic image for 3D reconstruction, tissue tracking, structure from motion, SLAM etc.

MICCAI 2010. My paper on Motion Compensated SLAM has been accepted to MICCAI 2010. The paper formulates the SLAM problem to work in a totally non static environment where tissue motion is caused by respiration. Video.
