Jung Hwan Oh, assistant professor of computer science and engineering, is developing software to improve colonoscopies so that polyps can be better detected and lives saved.
Oh’s work is in collaboration with researchers at the world-renowned Mayo Clinic and Iowa State University. They previously developed a prototype that provides a recording of the procedure in addition to a live image, which is now in use in some hospitals, including the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.
His research is funded by more than $450,000 in grants, including a new $184,000 grant from the National Institutes of Health.
One UNT postdoctoral student, and four graduate students work with Oh on the research.
