Innovation of Diagnostic and Therapeutic Techniques for Intelligent Precision Medicine
Intelligent and precise minimally invasive diagnosis and treatment has become one of the main trends of clinical medical development. Development of novel techniques and therapeutic strategies will be helpful for integrating minimally invasive treatment into an intelligent medical system. In the field of intra-operative imaging and processing, integrated diagnosis and therapeutic systems, which combines preoperative and intraoperative images have been established for precision tissue identification, tumor resection during surgery. The accuracy of the intraoperative detection of the tumor could be improved by using high-precision dynamic optical analysis. Furthermore, a large number of relevant research integrated mechanics, informatics, electronics and medical sciences have been carried out and are highly applicable to tumor diagnosis and therapy. These procedures include medical image/information assisted robotics surgery and minimally invasive intervention, which make surgery safer, less invasive and more effective. We have investigated novel image processing and multimodality image fusion methods in the field of quantitative and automatic analysis of lesions and anatomic structures to guide accurate diagnosis, efficient implant determination and radiation-free intraoperative navigation. The intelligent medical image analysis techniques have been carried out to guide precision treatment in different medical applications such as cardiovascular, orthopedics, and neurosurgery. Our goals expect break through the traditional concept of minimally invasive robotics surgery, open up a new field of minimally invasive diagnosis and treatment for precision medicine.
