AI-driven IGT Technologies: Augmented Reality for Therapy Delivery

April 8, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm ADT


In this lecture Nissan Elimelech, Founder and CEO of Augmedics, will provide an overview of the current state of artificial intelligence (AI) in image-guided therapy with a special focus on combining AI and augmented reality (AR) to advance image-guided surgery.

Nissan will discuss key points in starting a company and commercializing a technology in the AR and surgical navigation space, drawing reference to his experience in founding Augmedics, a Chicago-based company that is currently developing the first AR navigation technology to be used in surgery, allowing surgeons to see the patient’s anatomy through skin and tissues. Topics will include the role of AI in image-guided surgery and surgical navigation, current and potential AR applications and technological developments in image-guided surgery, and potential commercialization gaps, challenges and rewards. ​

This webinar will be presented in English. A recording will be available with English and French subtitles.
