Laboratory for Percutaneous Surgery
Thomas Vaughan is a doctoral student in Computer Science from Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. He focuses on the translation of software and hardware to clinical practice. He is currently working with researchers at Kingston General Hospital to improve multiple aspects of breast brachytherapy, including the quality of needle implant insertions, and catheter path tracking.
His goal is to promote reproducible research in computer algorithms by publishing source code and data wherever possible. He hopes that this approach will make published computer algorithms more accessible. Other researchers would not need to invest time in reimplementing and testing algorithms, and there is no risk that there will be mistakes during the reimplementation phase.
