Title: The SPL: a quarter century of research and translation in technology and biomedicine


Abstract: The Surgical Planning Laboratory (SPL) at the Department of Radiology of Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) in Boston was founded in 1990 for the investigation and use of image analysis technologies and tools for supporting image guided therapy (IGT). Providing end-to-end solutions to IGT problems requires a combination of different technologies and their integration into working systems. The presentation will cover some of the history and strategy behind the SPL and its parent program, the IGT program at BWH and discuss its current highlights, 3D Slicer and the AMIGO surgical suite.
