The goal of the Center for Modeling, Simulation, and Imaging in Medicine (CeMSIM) is to actively develop advanced modeling, simulation, and imaging (MSI) technology for healthcare through interdisciplinary collaborations with the aim of transitioning the technology to clinical practice.
Situated at the intersection of medicine and engineering, the CeMSIM develops novel MSI solutions for a variety of challenges in the healthcare enterprise. To accomplish its objectives, the CeMSIM engages in fundamental research related to computational science and engineering, imaging science and engineering, biomedical science and engineering, biorobotics, medical visualization, haptics, networking science and technology, virtual reality and cognitive science. Application projects encompass all aspects of clinical medicine including image-based diagnostic tools (e.g., radiology, ultrasound, CT, MRI and X-ray), image analysis methods, elastographic techniques, noninvasive clinical therapy as well as surgical planning and training, tele-medicine, and robotic surgery. The CeMSIM partners with premier medical schools, hospitals, industries and academic institutions across the country as well as many of the research platforms within Rensselaer. Research at the CeMSIM is aimed at rapid translation of technology from the bench to the bedside and to the greater community.
