For diagnosis, intervention planning, and medical education it is common to extract surface models from clinical tomography data. Surface extraction suffers from various effects of medical imaging, segmentation, and surface extraction techniques which cause visual disturbing surface artifacts (e.g. stairs, plateaus). Basic mesh smoothing algorithms for such(More)
BACKGROUND Over years, surgical training is changing and years of tradition are being challenged by legal and ethical concerns for patient safety, work hour restrictions, and the cost of operating room time. Surgical simulation and skill training offer an opportunity to teach and practice advanced techniques before attempting them on patients. Simulation(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate a selective implantable drop foot stimulator (ActiGait) in terms of effect on walking and safety. DESIGN A phase II trial in which a consecutive sample of participants acted as their own controls. SUBJECTS People who had suffered a stroke at least 6 months prior to recruitment and had a drop-foot that affected walking were(More)
The tibial nerve (TN) has three main terminal branches: the medial and lateral plantar nerves and the calcaneal branch (CB), which innervates the foot sole. The design and implantation of nerve cuff electrodes with separate channels for each of these three terminal branches would provide significant sensory information, which can be used in functional(More)
We study frequent pattern mining from positional data streams. Existing approaches require discretised data to identify atomic events and are not applicable in our continuous setting. We propose an efficient trajectory-based preprocessing to identify similar movements and a distributed pattern mining algorithm to identify frequent trajec-tories. We(More)
BACKGROUND The complexity of neurosurgical interventions demands innovative training solutions and standardized evaluation methods that in recent times have been the object of increased research interest. The objective is to establish an education curriculum on a phantom-based training system incorporating theoretical and practical components for important(More)
Virtual reality systems seems to be useful for training the use of brain spatulas without damaging brain tissue but the success of such a system is dependant on the human ability to discriminate pressures applied with the spatula. This paper describes an experiment designed to explore some central issues related to this ability: are surgeons better than(More)
