Research Description: Prasheel worked on the design of a hybrid X-ray fluoroscopy/MRI system to be used in the interventional suite to assist in image guidance for minimally invasive surgical procedures. His focus was on redesigning components of the x-ray source that are sensitive to magnetic fields. Using these modalities with each other offers several advantages, such as the ability to have both the real time tracking capability of x-ray along with the 3-D visualization and soft tissue contrast of MRI. These advantages can lead to an increase in the efficiency and safety for procedures in the interventional suite.
