Email: hahn@gwu.edu
Full Profile

Research Interest: Professor James Hahn's Institute for Computer Graphics and the Laboratory for Advanced Computer Applications in Medicine is engaged in research primarily on the use of simulation, reconstruction, and visualization for medical training, planning, and computer guidance. Technology from computer graphics and vision are used to generate 3D representations of anatomies, registered, and visualized. Current projects include a simulation, analysis, and training system for neonatal endotracheal intubation procedures, a visualization system that takes into consideration the different needs of the different medical specialties, and non-rigid registration for surface reconstruction.
