Research areas description

The Canada Research Chair in Medical Imaging and Assisted Interventions uses medical imaging technologies and computer algorithms to better assist doctors and physicians in treating their patients. The research carried out by the Chair is aimed at developing new personalized image-guided therapies to diagnose and treat neurological disorders and diseases like liver cancer.

Personalized image-guided therapies are playing an increasingly critical role in managing patients diagnosed with neurological disorders and diseases such as liver cancer. Image-guided interventions, for example, can integrate high definition diagnostic imaging with real-time ultrasound to facilitate the targeting of specific tissues or targets.

Personalized therapies also play a key role in the creation of virtual patient-specific models, new drug discoveries and the optimization of tailored therapies by using complementary forms of imaging modalities that would not otherwise be available during minimally invasive image-guided procedures.

Prof. Samuel Kadoury, Canada Research Chair in Medical Imaging and Assisted Interventions, is exploring the development of pioneering technologies that will provide personalized diagnosis and treatment tailored to individual patient needs. His work focuses on the development of new processing algorithms in biomedical engineering and medical image computing to better understand the space and time development of organs and diseases.

Prof. Kadoury is aiming to develop accurate ways to conduct image-guided interventions that will explore the "preparation phase" of a procedure by using road-mapping from a series of images. He is also investigating new instrument tracking technologies that will ease the workflows of interventional radiologists and surgeons. As well, he is developing non-invasive approaches to monitor therapy delivery.

Prof. Kadoury's research will lead to new, personalized image-guided therapies to improve patient safety, potentially reduce the risk of complications, and help stem rising health-care costs.
