Bio
Gabor Fichtinger, Dr. Univ. Professor and Cancer Care Ontario Research Chair School of Computing, w/ cross appointments in Surgery, Mechanical and Materials Engineering, and Electrical and Computer Engineering Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario, Canada Adjunct Professor of Computer Science and Radiology Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD, USA Adjunct Research Professor of Medical Biophysics Western University, London, ON, Canada Affiliated Faculty, The Techna Institute University Health Network and University of Toronto, Canada My research and teaching Interest is Medical Image Computing and Computer-Assisted Interventions. This is a fascinating and complex field that covers medical imaging, image computing, scientific visualization, surgical planning and navigation, robotics, biosensors and, perhaps most importantly, integration of all these into workable clinical systems and translating them to clinical use. I further specialize in robot-assisted minimally invasive percutaneous (through the skin) interventions performed under image guidance, with primary application in the detection and treatment of cancer. For details, please visit my Laboratory for Percutaneous Surgery, or as we call it affectionately: the Perk Lab, online. Those who have a high tolerance for boredom can read my entire biography (in PDF format) here, in its ostentatiously long incarnation.
