Tamas Ungi received 3rd place award at the 2014 Imaging Network of Ontario Symposium.

After his 1st place award last year, Tamas Ungi again reveived ImNO award, this time 3rd place for his paper:

T. Ungi, D. Beiko, M. Fuoco, F. King, M. Holden, R. Siemens, G. Fichtinger, Tracked ultrasound snapshots improve the performance of novices in simulated percutaneous nephrostomy, Imaging Network of Ontario Symposium, March 24-25, Toronto, 2014.



Jennifer Andrea wins Ontario/Baden-Württemberg Summer Research Fellowship

Jennifer Andrea received an Ontario/Baden-Württemberg Summer Research Fellowship to spend the summer in Heidelberg at the fabled Ruprecht-Karls-Universität and the German Cancer Research Institute.

Jen will work in a collaborate project on shared open source infrastructure for radiation therapy research ( Heidelberg is doubtless one of the most spectacular places in Europe, so I suppose Jen will have a constant stream of visitors :-)


Multidimensional data (2D+t, 3D+t) support added to 3D Slicer

We've implemented the MultidimData extension for 3D Slicer that allows creating, editing, and browsing sequences of nodes, such as 4D volumes, 3D models changing in time, sequence of tracked ultrasound frames and tool navigation data, etc. The MultidimData extension is available for the Slicer nightly builds. See more information on the MultidimData module's documentation page.

Plus toolkit Matlab interface updated with live data transfer

The Matlab interface of our Plus toolkit has been updated. In addition to the existing tracked image data reading/writing from/to files now real-time receiving and sending of transforms from/to Matlab are also supported. Real-time data can be obtained from all Plus-supported tracking devices, simulators, and files from PlusServer, or directly from any OpenIGTLink-compatible software, such as 3D Slicer.

Dr. Sue Sue

Earlier today, our Paweena (Sue-Sue) U-Thainual has defended her PhD thesis entitled "MR image overlay: An augmented reality system for needle guidance". Sue Sue was poised and well prepared, and she had good humour. In short, she gave a terrific performance. 

Well done and well deserved, Dr. Sue Sue!
