The three major research targets of this study are a OR informatics b simulation research, and c smart image. The purpose of the OR informatics program is to develop, test, and deploy technologies to collect real-time data about key tasks and process elements in clinical operating rooms. The objective of Simulation research is to create a system where a user can interact with a virtual human model in cognitive simulation and have the virtual human respond appropriately to user queries and interventions in clinical situations, with a focus on cognitive decision making and judgment. The objective of smart image is to use real-time 3D ultrasonography and 40- slice high-frame-rate computed tomography CT for intraoperative imaging to volume rendered anatomy from the perspective of the endoscope. The overall project reported here was modified to add and additional task related to the DARPA-sponsored, TraumaPod project. The period of this contract was extended to February 28, 2008. This extension was due to the delay in obtaining IRB approval and other administrative matters. Based on the extended period of performance, this project is on time, on schedule, and within performance parameters.
