Dr Tom Vercauteren will be delivering a seminar as part of the Hamlyn Winter School on Surgical Imaging and Vision on Thursday 10 December 2015, 11.00am - 12.30pm. The talk is titled "Real-time image computing for fiber-bundle-based optical imaging devices: from diagnosis to therapy guidance"


For information please visit the Hamlyn Winter School Website.

Dr. Christos Bergeles from TIG co-organises the Hamlyn Winter School on Surgical Imaging and Vision 2015. The School, attracting industrial members, early and late career researchers, and clinicians, aims to present fundamental theoretical concepts and state of the art advances in the field of surgical robot vision. This year, 21 international participants are attending. The schools kicks off with talks from international speakers from ETH Zurich, UCL, Siemens Medical, U Rennes, IRCAD and UBC and continues with student-led projects to be presented in Pecha Kucha style. 


This year, the school is supported by EPSRC through an Institutional Support Grant. Please find more information here.

We are delighted to announce that Frederik Barkhof has joined University College London as Professor of Neuroradiology, in effect from Monday 1st of October.

Whilst at UCL Professor Barkhof will work equally with the Institute of Neurology at the Faculty of Brain Sciences and the Institute of Biomedical Engineering at the Faculty of Engineering.

A total of 14 TIG members participated in MICCAI 2015, which was held in Munich, Germany from 5th – 9th October 2015. Our work this year covered areas ranging from neuroimaging and imaging genetics to fetal imaging and ophthalmology. A full list of papers which were accepted from members of TIG can be found here. Videos of many of these papers can be found here.


We would also like to thank Nassir Navab and Joachim Hornegger for organising such a great event!

See you next year in Istanbul... 


The TIG team had two awards at this year's MICCAI:

  • Tom Vercauteren received the "Best reviewer" award
  • Andre Altman received the "Best paper award" @ MLMI (Bernard Ng, Anna Milazzo, and Andre Altmann, “Node-based Gaussian Graphical Model for Identifying Discriminative Brain Regions from Connectivity Graphs“).

From the 14 members of TIG that participated in MICCAI 2015, 8 presented their work at the main conference. 5 min teasers from these papers can be seen by clicking "read more". 


Dr. Christos Bergeles gets awarded the New Lecturer's Small Grant by Fight for Sight. The award will support him towards research and development of an ophthalmoscope capable of single-shot 3D retinal imaging. 3D retinal imaging can provide physiological information that quantifies the progression of glaucoma as well as various neurological conditions, and, thus, the introduction of novel imaging methodologies can have significant societal impact.



Make sure you don't miss GIFT-Surg at the Bloomsbury Festival on Saturday 24 October.

We'll be at the festival as part of the UCL Research Hub in Beveridge Hall, Senate House on the Saturday only, from 12pm. This year Bloomsbury Festival is all about LIGHT and we will be showcasing our research into advanced minimally invasive surgery and how light makes this possible.
