Lab for Image Guided Medical Procedures

Carleton University, Ottawa, Ontario
What the facility does

3D motion tracking and dual energy x-ray imaging for image guided medical procedures

Area(s) of Expertise

We are developing a novel technology that can perform precise 3D tracking of a  target, such as tumour or surgical instrument, during the medical procedures. We also developing dual energy x-ray imaging to access soft-tissue motion of a patient.
