AEHRC has developed a flexible surgical simulation software platform, MILXSim, which provides high performance rendering and simulation capabilities to the Surgical Simulation and Planning team. The platform is developed in C++ and uses OpenGL with advanced surface shading techniques to render photo-realistic surgical training scenes and data rich preoperative planning scenarios. MILXSim uses a plugin […]

Various brain scans of a preterm infant

Diffusion MRI for modelling the normal neurodevelopment of the infant brain   Together with our collaborators at the Queensland Cerebral Palsy and Rehabilitation Research Centre and the Perinatal Research Centre, we are investigating the relationship between early MRI and clinical assessments, and clinical outcomes. Infants recruited in this study are born at less than 31 completed weeks […]

CONSULT is a 3D experience that allows neurosurgeons to see the invisible, making brain surgery safer and more effective than ever before       Brain Surgery Remains A High-Risk Procedure Brain surgery is dangerous. The brain contains about a trillion axons – microscopic ‘wires’ that carry information. Surgeons need to cut through a subset […]

Musculoskeletal Segmentation In 2001, 6.1 million Australians (32%) had long-term arthritis or a musculoskeletal disorder with almost 1.2 million reporting an associated disability (Bhatia 2005). Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis affecting nearly 1.4 million Australians and a major cause of chronic pain and disability (Bhatia 2005). This chronic joint disease is […]
