DFG Research Fellowship for Christian Hansen

Christian Hansen received a 12-month research grant from the German Research Foundation (DFG Research Fellowship). During a research stay at the Surgical Planning Laboratory, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA, a new method of 2D map display for navigational support during neurosurgical interventions will be developed.

The project results will deliver findings about additional advantages of the new 2D illustration techniques over conventional visualization techniques. Investigation will be carried out into which visualization parameters are adequate for precise and secure neurosurgical interventions. The results could form an important basis for subsequent studies in the field of intraoperative visualization.
