Danilo Gasques, M.S.

Hello! I am a Computer Science Ph.D. Candidate at UC San Diego (Weibel Lab / Design Lab).

My main research focus is on improving remote and co-located surgical mentoring and training through eXtended Reality technology.

In my research, I use mixed methods to better understand user goals, co-design with stakeholders, and evaluate and explain interventions. I also develop prototypes, tools, and systems. For example, tools to facilitate the rapid-prototyping of Augmented Reality applications.

As of 2020, I am excited to share that my research is supported by an Intuitive Surgical Ph.D. Research Fellowship.

Please, reach out to me at: gasques@ucsd.edu

Enhanced ultrasound systems and methods (2018)

Preetham Suresh, Danilo Gasques Rodrigues, Nadir Weibel, Elizabeth A. Anderson

Systems, devices, and methods are disclosed for an enhanced ultrasound system. A system may include an ultrasound probe. The system may include processing circuitry communicatively coupled to the ultrasound probe. The system may also include an AR device receiving image information from the processing circuitry and displaying one or more ultrasound images from the ultrasound probe in the field of view of an operator.
