Current Research Focus
Dr. Salcudean’s research focuses on ultrasound, teleoperation and image-guided surgical robotics. With Dr. Rohling, he has developed imaging methods to measure tissue mechanical properties; with clinical collaborators, he explores their correlation with disease. His current work with Drs. Goldenberg and Black in imaging prostate cancer aims to improve diagnosis and robot-assisted surgery.
