CIM-REPARTI member Professor Tal Arbel and members of her group at CIM are featured in the Faculty of Engineering Dean's Newsletter Fall 2011. Bioengineering is booming at McGill! Professor Arbel's Probabilistic Vision Group works with Montreal Neurological Institute researcher Louis Collins to find ways to match ultrasound images acquired during brain operations to the pre-op MRI, thus providing the surgeon with updated MRI pictures to use for guidance — pictures that have been corrected for the shift.
