Niki_NajafiI am a Computer Science Master's student at Applied Perception Lab.

My primary focus is developing innovative and accessible tools to improve confidence in surgical decision-making among patients and their clinicians. Specifically, I developed an augmented reality mHealth prototype application for surgical decision-making in breast cancer.

We have come up with 2 ways of displaying post-operative results on patients' breasts: either Marker-less or Marker-based.

For the Marker-based method, the 3D model of the patient's post-operative result is projected upon the detection of an AR Marker which is a QR code in our case.

For the Marker-less method, the patient's breast is detected based on its shape and then the 3D model is projected
