CAMP Receives Funding from JHU-Coulter
February 8, 2017
The Johns Hopkins-Coulter Translational Partnership Oversight Committee has selected the Johns Hopkins laboratory for Computer Aided Medical Procedures (CAMP), led by Nassir Navab, for the full funding requested for their system.
The system, entitled “Augmented Reality for Orthopedic and Trauma Surgeries,” comprises a 3D camera mounted on a traditional X-ray machine and 3D Computed Tomography (CT) images to guide the surgeon. Rather than seeing simple 2D X-ray images, their system shows the surgeon a 3D view of the bones, the drill, the patient surface, and even the surgeon’s hands in real-time.
