UTMB trains brain surgeons with realistic 3-D imaging

Galveston County Daily News, April 16, 2013

Yanking neurosurgical training out of the caves and into the 21st century has been Dr. Jaime Gasco’s mission ever since he became director of neurosurgery resident education for UTMB in late 2011. At UTMB, doctors in training to become neurosurgeons are using 3-D imaging mixed with a dose of virtual reality to identify diseased portions of the brain and to perform surgery. The unique 3-D set up sits discreetly in a lab in John Sealy Hospital and is one of about 10 in the nation and the only one in Texas.
