From the twitter: @BuckyIsotope: We’ve replaced Steve’s regular coffee with a detailed understanding of the impending heat death of the universe. Let’s see if he notices.

Incredible use of 3D printing .. to assist in infant heart surgery.
 
Doctor uses printed 3D heart to assist in infant heart surgery

Louisville Kentucky cardiothoracic surgeon Erle Austin has performed successful heart repair surgery on a 14 month old infant named Roland Lian Cung Bawi—heart surgery on such a young patient is not unheard of, of course, what's new is that Austin was able to map out his surgical approach using a nearly exact model of the patients heart—it had been printed on a 3D printer.

First use of #googleglass  in surgery in #Indiana
 
 
IU Health first in Indiana to use Google Glass in surgery
Surgery goes sci-fi as Indiana hospital performs the nation’s first abdominal wall reconstruction using Google Glass

INDIANAPOLIS—A sci-fi way of seeing things offers a new approach for performing lifesaving surgery.

Recently, physicians at Indiana University Health Methodist Hospital became the first in Indiana to perform a surgery using Google Glass, a wearable mini-computer and camera disguised as a pair of futuristic-style eyeglasses. IU Health Methodist Hospital is the first hospital in the United States to use this technology to both remove a tumor and reconstruct an abdominal wall.

Google Glass looks like a pair of eyeglasses without lenses. Users wear a thin, feather-light titanium frame that holds both a small camera and a see-through glass cube above their right eye. The camera can capture both still and moving images while the cube can project a "picture-in-a-picture" screen in the upper right corner of the user's field of vision. The compact device—which responds to voice commands, swiping gestures and taps on its frame—offers multi-tasking and instant, image-sharing capabilities.

“This ‘Star Trek’-style technology could really have a major impact on how we practice medicine,” said Dr. Paul Szotek, an IU Health trauma surgeon who specializes in hernia repair and abdominal wall reconstruction.

Dr. Szotek and his team used a pair of the wearable devices as they removed a rare type of tumor from the mid-section of Brian Hume, 45, an avid runner, husband and stay-at-home father of two who lives in Avon, Indiana.
 
During the four-hour procedure, Dr. Szotek and Dr. Jeff Browne, a resident surgeon and partner in the Glass project, used the device’s voice command capabilities to summon the patient’s MRI scans and x-rays into their field of view—all without having to use their hands or take their eyes off the patient. Such functions prove especially useful for medical professionals working in sterile environments.

“The device offers a number of exciting potential applications for patient care," said Dr. Szotek, who is one of about a dozen surgeons in the U.S. that have been chosen to explore healthcare applications of the technology. "I really think this could transform both what we do and how we do it.”

Early prototypes of this technology have been used to live-stream point-of-view video for teleconferencing and medical education purposes. Dr. Szotek and his team plan to take advantage of such applications, explore other potential uses and share learnings with medical colleagues at IU Health and at other centers across the country. Dr. Szotek believes other potential medical uses of this technology include:

Assisting first responders in evaluating and reporting traumatic injuries from the frontlines. “Imagine the time we could save if emergency response personnel could capture live images and videos of serious injuries at the scene of an accident and send them to surgeons at a trauma center who could assess the injuries and interact with the responders in real-time,” said Dr. Szotek.
 
Combining the technology with tracers that could help surgeons to better distinguish tumors from healthy tissue and allow for a more precise and complete removal. Such applications could revolutionize the field of cancer surgery, according to Dr. Szotek.

Interested collaborators may contact IU Health's Dr. Paul Szotek at pszotek@iuhealth.org or 317.963.1436 or through his Google Plus page at www.google.com/+PaulSzotekMD. Individuals may also contact Indiana University Research Technology Corporation’s Wesley Pennington at wwpennin@iu.edu or 317.278.1913.

IU Health Methodist Hospital has a longstanding history of medical firsts and is home to the largest Level I trauma center in Indiana, which treats approximately 3,600 patients with traumatic injuries each year.
