Abstract

The implantation of stimulators deep within the brain has become an important surgical approach to the treatment of movement disorders such as essential tremor and Parkinson's Disease.  Planning and execution of this procedure relies upon image guided neurosurgical techniques that can be labour intensive.  In this presentation I will present a computer-assisted trajectory planning system that was developed within the context of DBS image guided neurosurgery.  The general system architecture will be reviewed and results of a retrospective analysis evaluation of the system will be presented.

Biography

Dr. Pike obtained his undergraduate degree in electrical engineering from Memorial University and his M.Sc. and Ph.D. (Hons., 1990) at McGill University with his thesis research focused on stereotactic radiosurgery and magnetic resonance angiography respectively.  He conducted postdoctoral studies in Radiological Sciences at Stanford University and joined the faculty of McGill in 1993. From 1999-2013 Dr. Pike was Director of the McConnell Brain Imaging Centre at the Montreal Neurological Institute and was the Killam Professor of Neurology & Neurosurgery and James McGill Professor  of Biomedical Engineering.  In September 2013  Dr. Pike joined the University of Calgary as the CAIP Chair in Healthy Brain Aging, Head of Image Science, and Deputy Head - Research in the Department of Radiology.  He is also a Professor of Clinical Neurosciences and a Scientist at the Hotchkiss Brain Institute.  Dr. Pike has published more than 250 scientific papers and book chapters that have been cited over 15,000 times.  He is an editor of NeuroImage, chairs CIHR’s imaging panel, and serves on scientific advisory boards for a multitude of national and international programs.
