Workshop on “Deep Brain Stimulation Methodological Challenges" (2nd Edition)

Sept.14th / Boston (USA)



This MICCAI workshop aims at establishing a forum for discussing advanced methods related to surgical Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS). After a 1st successful edition during MICCAI 2012 that mostly focused on preoperative planning and per-operative procedures, this edition aims at discussing the potential of new imaging sequences and new types of stimulation electrodes, as well as an update on anatomo-clinical atlases.

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 performance of DBS interventions.


Topics of interests include but are not limited to: 

New pre / intra / post-op imaging modalities for DBS                                  New stimulation electrodes

New neuromodulation systems: TMS, rTMS                                               Assistance to decision making

Modeling for surgical workflow optimization                                                 DBS pre-operative planning

Biomechanical simulation of electrode deformations                                   Validation of DBS planning

Biomechanical simulation of brain shift                                                        Anatomo-functional brain atlases

Segmentation and modeling of anatomical structures of interest                Automatic identification of nuclei

Modeling of the effect of electrical stimulation                                             Modeling of surgical procedures
