Student Spotlight: Tal Nagourney - Exploring navigation

ECE graduate student Tal Najourney is exploring new frontiers in navigation technology. He and others in the group are trying to build a navigation device that doesnt need any external frame of reference, meaning the gyroscope is meant to guide navigation devices without using GPS. He worked with a professional glass blower to hone his technique.  [More Info]

Fighting lung cancer with faster image processing

A new $1.9 million research program led by Prof. Jeff Fessler seeks to make low-dose computed tomography scans a viable screening technique by speeding up the image reconstruction from half an hour or more to just five minutes.The advance could be particularly important for fighting lung cancers, as symptoms often appear too late for effective treatment. Prof. Thomas Wenisch is collaborating on the project.  [More Info]
