Research Interests

Dr. Hall’s research interests stem from his experience in medical imaging. He works with interventional radiologists to optimize pre-operative imaging protocols to support emerging minimally invasive procedures, such as prostate artery embolization. His lab is also working on image-guided robotic therapies for pedicle screw placement and laminectomy in the spine. His lab uses 3D printing extensively, including the development of 3D-printed objects with controllable radiopacity, and dissolvable 3D printed tissue molds derived from CT images. Finally, he works on the development of smart-phone based medical devices.
