CBS at UIC

without comments

Ok, so I had to come back in and edit this post a bit today.  When I first posted this I had a little laugh at CBS for suggesting UIC’s biomedical visualization program had remote control brain tumor attacking robots.  Well it turns out, we may not have robots, but there is in fact an “OR of the Future” project with which the program has involvement.  One of the interests of that program is the development of a micro catheter with a specialized operative tip, which utilizes advanced 3D visualization in it’s operation.  It actually would be used to get at previously inoperable tumors.  So I just thought that was really cool, and worth updating over.

And of course, all of this is regarding the CBS news team that popped by the biomedical visualization department a few days ago.  Nice interviews with Scott Barrows, Michaela Calhoun and Leslie (I’m afraid I don’t know her last name).  The link to the segment that aired is here.

I still want the robots though!
