Leading Radiologist and Imaging Specialist Joins Children's National Medical Center
Date:6/22/2010

Nabile Safdar to work with interdisciplinary team to transform visualization in pediatric surgery

Washington, DC (Vocus) June 22, 2010 -- Children’s National Medical Center announced the appointment of Nabile Safdar, MD, as principal investigator of the Bioengineering Initiative at the Sheikh Zayed Institute for Pediatric Surgical Innovation. A musculoskeletal radiologist and imaging informaticist, Dr. Safdar joins the Institute’s interdisciplinary bioengineering team to harness the full power of science and technology through a dynamically supported and fully integrated research and clinical program dedicated to accelerating advances in children’s surgical care.

“Before a surgeon ever operates, they review all available data to make sure they know where they’re going and what they’ll be seeing,” Dr. Safdar said. “Today, most of our views of the body, to draw an analogy, resemble a basic road map. We want to use advanced visualization, simulation and modeling techniques to make a quantum leap forward in how we view a patient’s body before surgery. We want to give surgeons a three-dimensional street-level view that’s more precise and enables the best outcomes for every patient.”

Dr. Safdar’s Institute research will focus on improving pre- and post-surgical evaluation through biomedical imaging and computational sciences, and improving the training of radiologists and surgeons in these advanced methods, including the use of computer assisted surgery.
