Research Interests

The long term goal/mission of the Computer Assisted Surgery and Therapy (CompAST) laboratory is to develop state of the art image guided surgery systems that incorporate innovative computer and machine interface technologies into surgical procedures, augmenting surgeons capabilities to achieve improved outcomes.

The main goals we are aiming to achieve are:

1- Improve surgical accuracy and functional outcome

2- Reduce costs (Surgical and Hospitalization)

3- Promote new technology in image guided surgery and therapy

4- Provide innovative technological solutions for understanding, treatment and monitoring of disease
