“Point of Care Computed Tomography: Imaging Where You Need It”
Intra-operative Computed Tomography (iCT) in head and neck surgery is scarcely used because complex and costly equipment is usually not accessible. Yet, iCT can transform surgical techniques and improve accuracy. We have set out to resolve this major limitation by engineering a highly mobile, easy to use, self-shielded iCT.
We will first show how our academic research led to a successful private enterprise. We will then focus on present and upcoming research aiming at delivering high quality imaging during head surgery, with the ultimate purpose of empowering surgeons to develop innovative techniques.
