March 28, 2019

Prof. Luc Soler, IRCAD’s scientific director, received the Marius Lavet prize this month in Paris, which is awarded to engineers for their innovative work and their contribution to economic and social development. This prestigious prize highlights inventors and their project which can then be developed by companies.

This marks the successful result of 25 years of research conducted by Luc Soler and his team at IRCAD, which led to the creation of Visible Patient in 2013. This start-up company provides personalized 3D models of patients extracted from their medical images. The software was developed to simulate and plan the intervention from this virtual copy of the patient, and therefore allows to greatly prevent mistakes and optimize the therapeutic decision process.
