Carla Pugh's Research Featured on NIH Website
University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health research on the use of sensor technology to improve breast exam skills is featured on the home page of the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) website.
According to the story, "the training system addresses a critical need for physicians to develop the technique and skill necessary to consistently detect the presence of breast lesions during a clinical breast exam (CBE)."
Pugh, the clinical director of the UW Health Clinical Simulation Program, is an advocate for haptics (the science of touch) and the use of tactile feedback in training.
The NIBIB is part of the National Institutes of Health.
