The concept of augmented reality (AR) has been introduced to variety of fields in the last decade. Recent development of portable devices such as smart phone and tablet PC provides the community a lot of possible applications in AR systems. Even in the medical field, various AR systems have recently been proposed: systems for education, pre-planning, and those in the operating room. The aim of this tutorial is to bridge the expertise between the researchers in ISMAR community and medical doctors so that researchers can contribute to the medical domain with their specialty more than one can do right now.

This tutorial aims to make a bridge between researchers in augmented reality field and medical doctors. We target an audience interested in medical augmented reality systems.

Instructor Background

Dr. Yuji Oyamada is currently a junior researcher in School of Fundamental Science and Engineering, Waseda University, Japan. Dr. Oyamada received all his degrees from Keio University: B.E., M.E., and Ph.D. of Engineering in 2006, 2008, and 2011 respectively. Before joining Waseda University, he was a full-time intern in Microsoft Research Asia from January to June 2010, a postdoctoral researcher in Keio University from October 2011 to March 2013, and a visiting researcher at the chair for Computer Aided Medical Procedure (CAMP), Technische Universität München (TUM) from March 2012 to March 2013. His research interests span computer vision and its applications but not limited: image restoration, image enhancement, camera/object tracking, and augmented reality.

Since Nov 2010, Dr. Fallavollita is a senior research scientist at the world-class Chair for Computer Aided Medical Procedures (CAMP), at Technische Universität München. He is managing and leading the research activities within the Navigated Augmented Reality Visualization System laboratory. His responsibilities include advancing research in medical augmented reality for anatomy/rehabilitation learning, medical simulation training, interventional imaging, intraoperative navigation, and surgical devices/systems for therapy delivery. His resume demonstrates that he can engage in partnership with clinicians from different clinical backgrounds and has built up solid relationships and research projects in outstanding hospitals in the areas of neurology, cardiology, radiation therapy, and orthopedic and trauma surgery.
