Synopsis: The main objective of this research project is to apply hyperspectral imaging techniques for the precise

localization of malignant tumours during surgical procedures. For this purpose, we will develop an experimental

intraoperative setup based on non-invasive hyperspectral cameras connected to a platform running a set of

algorithms capable of discriminating between healthy or pathological tissues. This information will be given to

the surgical team by the means found to be most suitable for the purpose of detecting and removing the

pathological tissues.

Role of Robotics Lab: ARMINES will lead the work package related with the algorithms that will determine the presence or absence of cancer, by applying to hyperspectral images adequate pattern recognition, classification and segmentation techniques.

Persons involved in Robotics Lab: Bogdan StanciulescuFabien Moutarde, Ravi Kiran
