Introduction TechMed Summerschool at Leiden

Dr. M.S. Arbous (LUMC)
How can we strengthen the bridge between the medical specialists and the engineers?

‘Who is who’

All participants
Beforehand participants and faculty prepare 2 questions: “Who are you & personal goals” to be shown with picture.

The green OR: mission impossible?

Prof. dr. F.W. Jansen
Due to the signed agreement of the Green Deal 2.0 by care providers, Hospitals have to implement their appointment to reduce their CO2 footprint to a neutral level in 2050. The OR is one of the most polluting areas in Hospitals. How to get a CO2 reduction in the OR and minimize its other pollution (volatile anaesthetics, use of plastic, harmful production processes)? What are the technical challenges. To measure is to know.

Circularity: the ultimate option in technical design of instruments

Dr. ir. T. Horeman (TUDelft)
The discussion to purchase reusable or disposable surgical instruments has probably been settled by circular design of new instruments. However, is that a challenging opportunity? Or fake news?

Digital Operating Room Assistant (DORA): process management of the future

Dr. J.J. van den Dobbelsteen (TUDelft)
Planning of the OR processes is currently still performed by human beings. This is not only an intensive process, but also costly. By implementing new technical features, this process can be automated and optimized. What are the missing links?

Technology application in developing countries: challenges or opportunities?

Prof. dr. J. Dankelman (TUDelft)
SMART technological tools, like iPhones, bring the 3rd world nearer to the developed countries and create chances to implement new surgical techniques as minimally invasive surgery. However, simple and applicable instruments and technologies have to be developed for these countries based on techniques and technologies of the developed countries. How to succeed? Where is the opening to get easier implementation.

Visual planning of surgery: 3D as option?

Again a new challenging option to work on in the near future. Does it add anything or is the surgeon’s skills and eye irreplaceable? How to develop 3D broader, and on which indication is it applicable?

‘Who is Who’ part 2

All Participants
Meet the experts.

Fluorescence guided surgery – from bench to bedside

Dr. A.L. Vahrmeijer (LUMC)

Hybrid concepts for surgical guidance

Prof. dr. F.W.B. van Leeuwen (LUMC)

Prepare medical-technological project “OR of the future” in small groups

All participants in groups of 4
9 statements/medical-technological challenges within the theme of “the OR of the future”.

Q &A and consultation with specialists for medical-technological project

All participants in groups of 4
Experts answer questions of the participant-groups.

“OR of the future by participants”
Presentation of Medical-technological project by each group.
Wrap-Closure of first day
All participants & Faculty
