System and Method for Landmark-Driven Virtual Colonoscopy – IP 1420

Florida International University inventors have developed a Landmark-DrivenVirtual Colonoscopy with Decorated Surface Mapping and Registration as aneffective mapping and registration method for virtual colonoscopies and otherlandmark-driven applications. The landmark method allows for understanding thenature of landmark curves on a 2D domain. This method provides a canonical andstraightforward view of the long, convoluted and folded tubular […]

Intraoperative Guidance System for Brain Tumor Surgery – IP 1322

Florida International University inventors created a methodologyto detect tumors primarily in pediatric patients. A combined point-detectionand imaging system device is utilized to detect brain tumors and their marginsto high accuracy based on distinct morphological, biochemical, andphysiological attributes to reduce the elimination of healthy brain tissue andmaximize the removal of tumor cells. Utilization of diffuse reflectance […]
