In conjunction with the school of biomedical engineering at CWRU, the IC is helping to develop the first “augmented-reality heart catheterization, ablation while patient is inside an MRI.” A physician would be fitted with a Microsoft HoloLens, and guided by real-time MRI imaging, would then direct and supervise the robotic procedure.

Professor M. Cenk Cavusoglu is the lead researcher on the team, which includes IC Faculty Director Professor Mark Griswold. The project secured a $2.7 million NIH grant to pursue the development.
