A clinical validation experiment of the ImmersiveTouch ventriculostomy simulator developed by MIE research assistant professor Cristian Luciano has been awarded the 1st Prize at the 12th Annual International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (Jan 2012). Funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), this study was conducted by the Dr. Allan L. and Mary L. Graham Clinical Performance Center (CPC) at UIC, organized by the Director of CPC, Dr. Rachel Yudkowsdky.

Comparing the performance of neurosurgery residents from four institutions (University of Chicago, Northwestern University, Rush and UIC) on both the simulator and live patients, this validation effectively proved that “Ventriculostomy practice on a library of virtual brains using a VR/Haptic simulator improves simulator and surgical outcomes”, as stated in the Abstract published in the Journal of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (vol.6. n.6, Dec. 2011).
