CICAS research projects are focused on developing better pre-operative and surgical tools, especially for intraoperative, navigational, volumetric imaging techniques. Our main research objective is to understand how computer technology and medical instruments (such as endoscopes, fluoroscopes, surgical microscopes, stereotactic units, X-ray machines, and ultrasound scanners) relate to one another in a surgical environment so that we can design, build, and test the next generation of application-specific image-guidance solutions. By bridging the gap between engineering concepts and medical science, we intend to develop novel imaging techniques that will result in improved patient outcomes and lower health care costs.
