Possible application areas / IDEAS

  • Acquiring 3D data sets for US, did we acquire all we need?
  • Uncertainty in navigation information
  • Brain / Structure Shift
  • reduce complexity of displays by offloading to audio
  • Depth cues for 3D data (shown on 2D screens)
  • coverage of needle in US

Project Description

Objective

  • Explore possibilities of auditory display for intraoperative use
  • Find opportunities for extending existing projects with auditory display

Approach, Plan

  • common sound synthesis software: PureData, Max, or SuperCollider DOWNLOAD PUREDATA EXTENDED>>> here
  • Test program for Puredata to listen for incoming OSC messages: link
  • libraries for OpenSoundControl include C++: liblo, Python: PyLiblo

Progress

  • Existing methods for intraoperative navigation guidance already implemented in Puredata, see for ureteroscopydownload link, for ablation needle insertion
  • Tried out iplementing liblo library for OSC messages, this workson Mac but not well on Windows.
  • Switched to python-based library, which works well. Rocio tried this out but not enough time to integrate with their existing apps.
  • Friendly contact between groups who are interested in working together (Rocio, Tamas, Elvis, Longquan)
