I propose the development of a 3D surgical cutting-path specification tool. We have a way of displaying organs and vessels in 3D from medical images. The next step is to provide clinicians with a useful tool for displaying those items in 3D and then specifying a cutting path in 3D.
The project's emphasis is providing
a tool that can be used by clinicians.
The team will interact with myself and clinicians (Drs. Bullitt and Weeks) regarding the design of the interface.
There is a great need and interest in many clinical departments for such a tool!
