Research Assistant in “Medical Navigation for Computer-Assisted Surgery”


Project Description:


Computer-assisted surgery (CAS) refers to surgical methods that make use of computer technology to aid in planning and executing surgical procedures. These methods enabled physicians to better visualize the target area and give a more accurate diagnosis. Medical navigation system plays an important role in CAS, since it provides reliable localization and tracking of object (or human body part) during the surgical procedures. Commonly the tracker subsystem used in the medical navigation is designed for cases where the positions of camera and target area undergo only slight changes, if any, during the entire process. When this presumed condition is not available, the navigation system will not work. Such situation occurs when e.g. the camera view is disrupted by something for a while. To overcome this problem we need an intelligent navigation system which is capable for memorizing the latest and predicting the next state of system parameters.


This research project aims at developing (and implementing) a theoretical model of a smart medical navigation system for CAS. The proposed system will consist of digital camera that automatically captures the position of reference points attached to the surface of a target of interest. The generated image data are then fed to the image processing unit which will detect the reference points in the image and subsequently compute their actual locations. The result will be applied to determine the current position and orientation of the target. In anticipating the abrupt change of the observed target, a Kalman filter will be embedded to ensure the robustness of the proposed model. A good understanding on the principle work of a simple medical navigation system which is equipped with the robust object tracking feature would provide a basis for the development of more complex navigation systems that would be useful for the improvement of future CAS.




Regarding the above project a Research Assistant (RA) position is currently open in the Department of Mechatronics Engineering, IIUM. The position is suitable for PG student with Master degree and strong background in Electrical/Electronic/Mechatronics Engineering or Informatics Engineering which wants to pursue a PhD in Engineering. Candidate with good knowledge of C/C++ programming is encouraged to apply. The minimum CGPA is 3.0. If you are interested in a challenging field, please send your application with CV to:
