CASMIP Lab - Computer Aided Surgery and Medical Image Processing

The Computer Aided Surgery and Medical Image Processing (CASMIP) laboratory conducts groundbreaking interdisciplinary research to develop innovative computer-based methods for assisting clinicians in the diagnosis, planning, execution, and evaluation of medical and surgical procedures. We follow a synergistic methodology, which consists of developing the basic building blocks for computer-aided radiology and surgery while simultaneously developing solutions for specific clinical applications. The CASMIP laboratory conducts basic and applied interdisciplinary research in close collaboration with leading hospitals, universities, and companies in Israel and abroad. It has an established record of industrial collaboration and technology transfer.

The main clinical areas of research include Neurosurgery, Neuroradiology, Medical Imaging, Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology, and Orthopaedics. The technical areas include surgical navigation, Radiology, Neurosurgery, and Orthopaedics. The technical areas include deep learning, anatomy and pathology segmentation, medical image processing, medical robotics, multimodal registration, and patient-specific medical modeling.
