Touchless interaction with medical images lets surgeons maintain sterility during surgical procedures.
This paper presents new learning-based techniques for measuring disease progression in Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patients. Our system aims to augment conventional neurological examinations by adding quantitative evidence of disease progression. An off-the-shelf depth camera is used to image the patient at the examination, during which he/she is asked to… (More)
The aim of this workshop is to unpack different ways of thinking about time, drawing a distinction between time as experienced, and time as counted by a ticking clock or measured by a computer algorithm. The concept of time is often taken for granted within HCI, yet highlighting the assumptions that underpin it could provide a resource for research and… (More)
While surgical practices are increasingly reliant on a range of digital imaging technologies, the ability for clinicians to interact and manipulate these digital representations in the operating theatre using traditional touch based interaction devices is constrained by the need to maintain sterility. To overcome these concerns with sterility, a number of… (More)
Computer visions (CV) systems are increasingly finding new roles in domains such as healthcare. These collaborative settings are a new challenge for CV systems, requiring the design of appropriate interaction paradigms. The provision of feedback, particularly of what the CV system can 'see,' is a key aspect, and may not always be possible to present… (More)
Developments in computer vision technology have led to a plethora of new body tracking applications. These applications share a challenge in accounting for characteristics of the specific places in which they are intended to be used. We present the concept of Place-onas, representations of "typical" places, as a shared resource to support multidisciplinary… (More)
This case study represents our efforts to investigate the uses of voice control versus gestural control in the OR. We present a system we expressly built to allow for both gestural or voice control at the choice of the surgeon. We explain our deployment of this system in the context of cardiothoracic surgery and present a vignette on how the system was used… (More)
