For many years, his research focused on all aspects of computer-integrated interventional medicine. Broadly, Russell H. Taylor’s research has included: medical robotics; medical imaging & modeling; and complete systems for surgical assistance, image-guided surgery, and what he refers to as "Surgical CAD/CAM".
An underlying theme has been the basic insight that information-based technologies can have just as profound an impact on computer-integrated medicine as it has had on computer-integrated manufacturing.
Some of Taylor’s current and recent research projects include work on systems, medical robotics for microsurgery and MIS, statistical modeling and deformable 2D-3D registration, radiation oncology planning, and human-machine cooperative systems in surgery.
