Russell H. Taylor, Johns Hopkins University, talks about "Medical Robotics and Computer-Integrated Interventional Medicine".
Date: January 31, 2011
Time: 11:00 am
Location: A.V. Williams Building, Room 2460
This talk will discuss ongoing research at the NSF Engineering Research Center for Computer-Integrated Surgical Systems and Technology (CISST ERC) to develop systems that combine innovative algorithms, robotic devices, imaging systems, sensors, and human-machine interfaces to work cooperatively with surgeons in the planning and execution of surgery and other interventional procedures. This talk will describe past and emerging research themes and illustrate them with examples drawn from our current research activities in medical robotics and computer-integrated interventional systems.
