EXTENDED TEAM

Paul Klahr

Software Development

Paul Klahr has over 30 years experience in the Medical Imaging industry. He worked at a CT scanner manufacturer and during his tenure he developed software all of the sub-systems of the scanner. He was also the chief software architect for one of the first commercial CT image-guided biopsy systems. This system integrated a position tracking mechanical arm with the CT scanner. His last position at the CT company was Clinical Research Scientist in the area of CT utilization in Radiation Oncology departments. In this capacity, he worked in conjunction with clinical partners and developed software prototypes to evaluate new applications in this arena.

Aydan Hanlon

Aydan Hanlon is a Research Engineer with a degree in Engineering Physics from John Carroll University. As a biomedical research professional, Aydan is skilled in the research and design of surgical navigation and image guidance platform technology, numerical analysis, technical writing, software development of Augmented/Virtual Reality applications in Unity 3D, and anatomical segmentation from DICOM data sets. Going forward, Aydan will focus on researching and further developing our platform technology.

Sara Al-Nimer

Research Engineer

Sara Al-Nimer is a Research Engineer in the Biomedical Engineering Department in the Lerner Research Institute at Cleveland Clinic. Her accumulated expertise largely aids in bridging the fields of Mathematics and Biomedical engineering. Sara holds BS degrees in Mathematics and Psychology as well as a MS in Biomedical Engineering from Cleveland State University.

After completing her undergraduate honors research project in Cleveland Clinic Children’s hospital, which centered on the study of cognitive functioning of children with ADHD, she was compelled to take on immense interests in medical imaging research and medical devices.

In 2017, she completed an internship at Cleveland Medical Devices, Inc., gaining exposure to medical device validation testing, as well as vital areas of regulatory affairs and clinical personnel training on device use. Sara’s interest in leveraging the capabilities of AR/VR/XR in healthcare started in Cleveland State University, as her Master’s graduation project focused on developing a proof-of-concept AR application for preliminary verification of an AR-guided biopsy needle.

Since then, Sara joined Cleveland Clinic’s Biomedical engineering research team, working with physicians on various projects in image-guided therapies using AR/XR. During her time at Cleveland Clinic, she collaboratively worked on writing NIH small business grants, internal grants and IRB protocols. Furthermore, she brings expertise in statistical analysis, segmentation of DICOM datasets, 3D-CAD modeling and design, and is a co-inventor of the ultrasound-guided RTFHV technology (patent pending). She enjoys giving back to the community by serving as a member of Cuyahoga County Community College’s Biomedical Manufacturing Advisory Board and as a member of Beech Brook Behavioral and Mental Health Center’s Emerging Leaders Board.

Crew Weunski

Research Student

Crew is a research student with a background in physics from John Carroll University. He has experience in statistical and data analyses, segmentation of patient anatomy from computed tomography DICOM data sets, and utilizing the Unity 3D platform for AR/VR application development. Crew will be working toward system optimization and development of the platform technology for MediView.
