The only potentially curative option for patients with colorectal liver metastases (CRLM) or hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is surgical resection. However, 80–85% of these patients are not eligible for liver surgery because of extensive intrahepatic metastatic lesions or the presence of extrahepatic disease. Neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) is increasingly applied with the aim to downsize tumors in […]
Multimodal imaging is increasingly being used within healthcare for diagnosis, planning treatment, guiding treatment, biopsy, surgical navigation and monitoring disease progression. Multimodality imaging takes advantage of the strengths of different imaging modalities to provide a more complete picture of the anatomy under investigation. The goal of this study is to develop a real-time MRI and […]
Minimally invasive surgery using cameras to observe the internal anatomy is the preferred approach to many surgical procedures. Furthermore, other surgical disciplines rely on microscopic images. As a result, endoscopic and microscopic image processing, as well as surgical vision, are evolving as techniques needed to facilitate computer-assisted interventions (CAI). Algorithms that have been reported for […]
Surgery forms the mainstay in the treatment for solid tumors. However, in up to 30% of the cases, surgery is inadequate either because tumor tissue is left behind erroneously or surgical resection is too extensive compromising vital structures such as nerves. So in cancer surgery, surgeons generally operate at a delicate balance between achieving radical […]
