Key Investigators

  • Mikael Brudfors, Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) --- formerly KTH & UBC, next UCL
  • David García, UC3M
  • Javier Pascau, UC3M
  • Tamas Ungi, Andras Lasso (Queen's University, Kingsotn, ON, Canada)

Project Description


  • Development of an intraoperative guidance system for breast cancer surgery that would allow for guidance, tumor detection and localization.

Approach, Plan

  • Possibilities of combining multiple imaging modalities (3D Scanner Surface data, US, MR) and visualizing these in 3D Slicer


  • Acquire tracked US using the PLUS toolkit (DONE)
  • Record surface data using an Artec 3D scanner and visualize it in 3D Slicer (DONE)
  • Communicate with the 3D Scanner through 3D slicer module (WORK IN PROGRESS)
  • Define an acquisition protocol. Tamas Ungi showed their protocol and Slicer module that includes needle tracking and a possible collaboration was identified (WORK IN PROGRESS)
