BME Seminars - Stéphane Cotin

Seminar announcement flyer

This Friday, December 4th 2015, we will have the great pleasure of hosting a talk given by Stéphane Cotin, Research Director at INRIA and leader of the MIMESIS team. The seminar will be held  between 1:30 pm and 3 pm in lecture theatre Fournel at ENSAM ParisTech. The seminar topic will be “Improving patient safety through real-time numerical simulation”.


The variety, complexity and essential role of modern medicine have been a strong motivation for many recent scientific developments. While medical imaging has become an integral part of today's medicine, new fields are emerging, such as robotics, simulation, augmented reality, or workflow analysis. In this talk I will highlight the increasingly important role of (real-time) numerical simulation in various domains, such as training, but also for planning and in the assistance of complex interventions. I will illustrate the impact of simulation through a series of results in various areas of medicine, such as interventional radiology, ophthalmology, and laparoscopic surgery. Finally I will discuss some of the remaining challenges that still hinder the use of computational anatomy and simulation in medicine.
