How Virtual Reality Sparks Medical Innovation
Justin Sutherland is a clinical medical physicist at the Ottawa Hospital and CEO and Co-Founder of Realize Medical. He obtained his MSc in Medical Physics from McGill University and his PhD in Medical Physics from Carleton University.
At the Ottawa Hospital, Justin has pursued research in developing and applying novel virtual reality and tracking technologies in medicine, both with the department of radiology and the radiation medicine program. These efforts led to founding and leading realizeLAB, a research initiative from the Division of Medical Physics of the University of Ottawa Department of Radiology. The lab is currently pursuing a number of collaborative projects with radiologists, surgeons, and radiation oncologists throughout the Ottawa Hospital.
Justin’s latest venture brings him into the business world as CEO and Co-Founder of medtech startup Realize Medical—makers of the first platform for creating and interacting with 3D medical models entirely in virtual reality.
