Abstract

Surgical Data Science (SDS) is an emerging scientific field that focuses on the acquisition, modeling, and analysis of data in order to improve the quality of interventional healthcare. It encompasses clinical disciplines which involve interventions to manipulate anatomical structures with a diagnostic, therapeutic, or prognostic goal. This chapter introduces the concept of SDS in detail, provides a brief review of the technical and clinical state-of-the-art in the field, and discusses key technical challenges to move the field forward.
