Image Guided Surgery Lab

The image-guided surgery lab is part of Robarts Research Institute’s imaging research program. In this laboratory Terry Peters and his colleagues are concerned with the development and validation of tools that allow surgeons to make efficient use of images produced by sophisticated 3-D imaging systems during surgical procedures. The aim is to advance the technologies that will permit surgery to be performed at multiple sites within the body, guided by medical imaging and executed by remotely actuated miniature surgical tools. This allows surgeons to perform minimally-invasive procedures, causing the least trauma to the patient while achieving the desired therapeutic result.
