Nobuhiko Hata, PhD
Guidance Core PI, National Center for Image Guided Therapy (NCIGT)
I am an engineering researcher in a teaching hospital who specializes in medical image computing and medical device development. I have been affiliated with the Image Guided Therapy Program at Brigham and Women’s Hospital since 1995 and have helped develop 3D Slicer software that is now used clinically for a wide variety of MRI and CT-guided interventions and surgery. I am also assisting in the design, development and clinical testing of medical robots that will be used to help perform MRI and CTguided interventions in the future. I have developed medical devices, applied in real clinical cases to enable new clinical approaches. I have been active in filing patents through my collaboration with industry and successfully obtained six granted US patents related to Image Guided Therapy devices. I also help companies to commercialize image guided therapy devices with SBIR/STTR grant support and obtain FDA 510K Clearance.
