The National Center for Image Guided Therapy (NCIGT) is a Biomedical Technology Resource Center supported by the NCRR and NIBIB institutes of the NIH. The NCIGT serves as a national resource for all aspects of research into medical procedures enhanced by imaging, with the common goal of providing more effective patient care.
Based at the Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts, the NCIGT is lead by Ferenc A. Jolesz M.D. and Clare Tempany M.D. and includes the work of more than one hundred physicians, scientists, and technical staff members. Download a movie (80MB) here about the NCIGT team work.
Approximately 1000 visitors had a chance to try image-guided, navigated surgery on the modified Operation Game at the Science Rendezvous in Kingston, Ontario, Canada on May 11, 2013. This event was presented by The Perk Lab and they used PlusServer to connect to the tracker, and 3D Slicer with the SlicerIGT extension for visualization.
