Who we are

    We direct our daily efforts towards challenge driven research, aiming to solve practical problems faced by clinicians and surgeons in their daily practice. To this end, technically innovative solutions need to be introduced using advanced image processing algorithms and surgical tool design. On the longer term, the ultimate goal is to provide more efficient work pipelines for optimal clinical performance.
The scientific vision of the research work at our lab focuses on augmenting the information at the disposal of the physician and potentiating its precision inside a surgical theater. To this end, we aim to integrate multi-modality image sources combined with personalized models to improve surgeons’ scope of the patient’s anatomy, as well as providing accurate tracking of the operating tools. Additionally, the development of more natural and efficient interfaces to improve the overall control of surgical instruments and the design of patient-specific devices will complete an integrated suite of research efforts on the path towards smarter interventions.
