The Clinical Center serves as a trusted source for scientific knowledge and a place where clinical research thrives.
Along with the clinical research training opportunities and resources that abound at the Clinical Center there is a rich reservoir of information and assistance for physicians and healthcare professionals.
Robotics in Research - Robotic needle-driver and ultrasound arms attached to a CT scanner test automatic needle placement for biopsy and tumor ablation with point-and-click accuracy.
Fusion Imaging - 3D colorized-fusion imaging defines tumors as targets for thermal ablation.
Holographic Globe - 3D spatial visualization moves beyond regular display monitors to show inside the body during procedures. The colon is blue, the liver is red, and there is a hole in the liver where a tumor was cooked with needles in a minimally-invasive, image-guided procedure.
