Image-Guided Software Toolkit (IGSTK) Phase III Planning Meeting Kevin Cleary, PhD Imaging Science and Information Systems (ISIS) Center Computer Assisted Interventions and Medical Robotics (CAIMR) Lab Department of Radiology Georgetown University Medical Center Washington, DC 4 January 2007
IGSTK Phase IIIJan 2007Slide 2 Objectives Primary: strategic planning for the future Secondary –Update participants on project status –Coordinate with all collaborators –Refine the management structure –Set priorities and milestones –Define a work plan
IGSTK Phase IIIJan 2007Slide 3 Project Funding History Proposal submitted Dec 2001 –STTR Phase I to Kitware awarded Phase II proposal Dec 2003 Contract end August 2006 IGSTK R01 submitted May 2006 Funding expected about 1 Feb 2007 –Three year funding –Georgetown, Kitware, Atamai, ASU
IGSTK Phase IIIJan 2007Slide 4 What do we want from IGSTK? Core set of software for developers to rapidly prototype image-guided applications –Robustness is critical A place in the open source and open science community Vehicle for future funding User community is critical to all of this What do you want from IGSTK?

IGSTK Phase IIIJan 2007Slide 11 Book Status To be distributed free of charge at SPIE Medical Imaging Meeting –Sunday 16 February in San Diego Due at publisher on January 31 –Local publisher I have used before Need updated versions of some chapters Please comment on book cover –Very preliminary draft on next page –Perhaps list all authors on front
IGSTK Phase IIIJan 2007Slide 12 Rough Draft of Book Cover (will change)
IGSTK Phase IIIJan 2007Slide 13 End of Formal Slides Some miscellaneous slides follow Was not sure where to put them yet
IGSTK Phase IIIJan 2007Slide 14 Possible Additions to Toolkit New trackers? Interface to different GUIs? Requests from Trondheim? Requests from other users? –Are we tracking these anymore?
IGSTK Phase IIIJan 2007Slide 15 Other issues (miscellaneous slide) FDA approval of toolkit –Want to get an image-guided application based on IGSTK approved –Georgetown submitted to FDA this fall –FDA said no IDE was needed due to existence of predicate devices What else goes here?
IGSTK Phase IIIJan 2007Slide 16 Kevins To Do List for IGSTK Update web site
IGSTK Phase IIIJan 2007Slide 17 For the Discussion (deliberately provocative!) Is IGSTK too hard to use? –Or is that the price to pay for robustness? Is the IGSTK process broken? –Requirements part appears to be
IGSTK Phase IIIJan 2007Slide 18 The End Thank you for your support and participation!
