The EPSRC has agreed funding for a project to develop a Physics-based virtual environment for training in vascular interventional radiological procedures. This will be a collaborative project with Liverpool, Bangor, Hull, Leeds and Imperial universities. The project will develop, integrate and validate a complete virtual environment for training in vascular interventinal radiology, encompassing needle puncture as well as guide wire and catheter insertion and manipulation.
A second project in this area has also been funded by the Department of Health under the Health Technology Devices Programme. The project will develop and validate a virtual reality simulator for training in interventional radiological visceral needle puncture procedures. The work will be in collaboration with Liverpool, Bangor, Leeds, Imperial and Hull Universities, and Medic Vision Pty Ltd.
See the CRaIVE Projects page for more details.
