"Simulation Support for Cardiac and Spinal Procedures"
The VASST lab at Robarts is investigating image-guided approaches for a number of diverse procedures. Two such projects involve tools for a more precise performance of intra cardiac repairs to the beating heart, and for the delivery of anesthetic agents to the spine. In both cases, in addition to the platforms for delivering the therapy in the clinical arena, we have been developing simulation environments, both computer-based and physical, to facilitate training in the execution of these procedures.
The talk will highlight the rationale for the actual procedures, and provide an update on the simulation platforms developed to support them.
Food will be provided.
