Yuehao Wang from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (supervised by Professor Qi Dou) has won the MICCAI Society Young Scientist Award for her paper, “Neural Rendering for Stereo 3D Reconstruction of Deformable Tissues in Robotic Surgery”, at the 25th International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention (MICCAI 2022).
Wang’s work focuses on the reconstruction of soft tissues in surgical scenes – a process that plays a very important role in many clinical applications, such as intraoperative navigation and image-guided robotic surgery automation. Her paper is set to bring about a significant breakthrough in surgical scene reconstruction by opening more pathways for understanding robotic surgery scenes and other clinical-oriented tasks downstream.
The MICCAI is the largest and most influential global academic conference in the field of medical image computing and computer-assisted interventions, which sits in the interdisciplinary areas of medical imaging, artificial intelligence, computer vision, surgical robotics, and extended reality techniques for healthcare applications. During the conference, the MICCAI Young Scientist Awards is held to recognise papers of the highest quality that are first-authored by young scientists. This year, MICCAI accepted 574 out of 1,865 submissions and selected the five best papers to be awarded, based on the quality of their scientific contribution and conference presentation.
