Prediction of Alzheimer’s Disease Progression with Multi-Information Generative Adversarial Network
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a chronic neurodegenerative disease, and its long-term progression prediction is definitely important. The structural Magnetic Resonance Imaging (sMRI) can be used to characterize the cortical atrophy that is closely coupled with clinical symptoms in AD and... Read more

Fiber optic sensors-based thermal analysis of perfusion-mediated tissue cooling in liver undergoing laser ablation
Blood perfusion plays a key role for the ablation success, especially in the case of highly vascularized organs like liver. Aim of this work is to evaluate the vessel distance influence on the thermal gradient and the cooling of the tissue caused by blood perfusion during laser ablation. The proposed setup, based on Fiber Bragg Grating sensors (FBGs) around the laser applicator, permitted to measure the heat propagation and to observe a relevant tissue cooling near to the vessel...

Image guidance in deep brain stimulation surgery to treat Parkinson’s disease: a comprehensive review
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is an effective therapy for Parkinson’s disease (PD). The success of the procedure depends heavily on the accurate placement of the electrode within the optimal therapeutic targets while avoiding vital structures that can cause adverse outcomes. Interventional guidance with medical imaging has greatly contributed to the development, outcomes, and safety of the procedure. With rapid technological advancements, it will further enhance the capacity and efficacy of the procedure. We present a comprehensive review on the state-of-the-art techniques in image-guided DBS surgery to treat PD, and discuss about the future directions on the topic... Read more

Design and Comparison of Magnetically-Actuated Dexterous Forceps Instruments for Neuroendoscopy
Robot assistance is revolutionizing minimally invasive surgical (MIS) techniques. As robot assistance becomes standard in areas such as urology and general surgery, it remains largely absent in neurosurgery. The primary reason is a lack of dexterous wristed tools that are small and compact enough to maneuver within the confines of the brain. In this study, we present a wireless magnetic power transmission that enables the design of unconventional tiny wristed robot tools. By deploying the tools endoscopically within a silicone brain model, we demonstrate the feasibility of these novel devices for future neuroendoscopic robots... Read more

A Wireless Implantable Passive Intra Abdominal Pressure Sensing Scheme via Ultrasonic Imaging of a Microfluidic Device
This work developed an implantable, low-cost, passive pressure sensor capable of measuring in situ IAP (intra-abdominal pressure) wirelessly using ultrasound imaging. The transducer consists of a pressure sensitive reservoir filled with water and a hydrophobic microchannel, both made of PDMS. A change of IAP will push the water from the reservoir into the channel with the in-channel fluid displacement in response to the applied pressure, which can be quantitatively analyzed by using a 40MHz ultrasound imaging system. The sensor is able to work in the physiological range of abdominal compartment syndrome with a highly linear sensitivity of 1.2kPa/30µm... Read more
