DORS 2016 - Digital Operating Room Summer School

12th September 2016 - 17th September 2016
Leipzig, Germany


Modern medical therapies are characterized by an increasing number of technological support, medical devices, information systems, imaging components or assistance systems. The need for research and development into new medical systems and networked applications for computer-assisted therapies is growing rapidly and new technologies have to be integrated into the clinical environment. Moreover, these systems need to be able to communicate and interact with each other and with the hospitala€™s IT environment. The Digital Operating Room Summer School (DORS) encourages a new generation of young scientists from the fields of medicine, engineering and computer science to face the challenges resulting from the integration of new technologies for computer-assisted diagnosis and therapy.DORS is primarily aimed at graduates, doctoral students, post-docs and senior scientists from research and industry with an interdisciplinary working background. The six-day course with an exciting program will comprise lectures, hands-on sessions and site visits to give an extensive overview of medical technology in digital operating rooms and interventional suites from different perspectives along with insights into current research projects and problems. Clinical experts and users will explain their views and expectations regarding innovative computer-assisted technologies as well as the current state of the art in clinical practice and research. Both, successful developments and negative examples will be addressed. Moreover, the technical background of innovative infrastructure and technical standards will be examined, and various architectures, frameworks and communication technologies for computer assisted interventions are presented.
