Our aim is the reduction of anastomotic leakage
Within our ‘anastomotic leakage’ mission we examine a measuring instrument that is indicative of the quality of tissue of the intestinal wall. This provides an improved parameter for the surgeon’s clinical decision making. This concerns a minimally invasive application. In this project we work together with the UMCG, prof. dr. Gooitzen M. van Dam and medical specialists of the Medical Centre Leeuwarden such as Dr. Christiaan Boerma, Dr. Christiaan Hoff, Dr. Sietze Koopal and Prof. Dr. Jean Pierre Pierie and Computer Vision specialist Dr. Klaas Dijkstra of NHL/Stenden. Furthermore, LIMIS-Development PhD researcher Wido Heeman (MSc) is conducting several clinical and non-clinical studies in the field of applications of PerfusiX-Imaging and connected research aspects.
