Queen's University Department of Surgery - Human Mobility Research Centre

The Department of Surgery, in particular, our Division of Orthopaedic Surgery, has enjoyed a very successful relationship with the Human Mobility Research Centre (previously the Clinical Mechanics Group) at Queen's University, a multidisciplinary research group comprising participants from orthopaedic surgery, mechanical engineering, rehabilitation therapy, community health and epidemiology, rheumatology, and computer science and information technology.

Wonderful news from Med-i and Perk Labs!

The following projects  are part of our ongoing breast cancer research work that was presented at the 19th annual Imaging Network Ontario symposium. In these presentations we discuss the ongoing work happening with AI development for the Intelligent Knife (iKnife) and the DESI machine, as well as our more recent investigation into robotic assistance.
