NousNav: Low-cost neuronavigation system

Key Investigators

Project Description

The NousNav project is an initiative led by Dr Alex Golby to develop a low-cost neuronavigation system designed for use in low- and middle-income countries. We are developing a 3D Slicer based application focused on supporting segmentation, registration and navigation tasks.

The project will also include the development of open source hardware designs for these applications.


  1. Discuss next steps and current progress
  2. Explore ideas to improve surface registration
  3. Explore ideas for skin segmentation

Approach and Plan

  1. Discuss specific requirements
  2. Test new methods
  3. Fix existing bugs

Progress and Next Steps

  1. Added tracing registration to the workflow (see picture below)
  2. See other related projects for other updates on tracking, segmentation, etc.
