With $1.9 million from the National Science Foundation, University of Arizona Distinguished Professor and Raymond J. Oglethorpe Endowed Chair Jerzy Rozenblit is developing and testing a training device that reduces surgical errors by giving surgeons a better grasp of noninvasive surgical techniques.
The Computer-Aided Surgical Trainer system will be the first to provide haptic guidance and augmented reality images for trainees when directly manipulating surgical instruments.
Under the leadership of co-principal investigator Allan Hamilton, who holds an ECE joint appointment, the CAST system will also make its way into classrooms in the UA College of Medicine - Tucson for a pilot clinical training study.
