For the first time, a steerable catheter will give neurosurgeons the ability to steer the device in any direction they want while navigating the brain's arteries and blood vessels.
Researchers have created a novel 3D printing workflow that allows cardiologists to evaluate how different valve sizes will interact with each patient's unique anatomy, before the medical procedure is actually performed.
Smart speakers that are customarily used in your living room can be programmed to act as an aid to physicians in hospital operating rooms.
The patch, which can be folded around surgical tools, may someday be used in robotic surgery to repair tissues and organs.
Scientists have developed an easy way to make millirobots by coating objects with a glue-like magnetic spray.
Researchers have demonstrated that their technique can stop the catheter at the right target and identify the source type with a 95.25 percent success rate.
Researchers developed a device that can monitor bladder volume in real time and effectively empty the bladder.
Researchers have created a material with a unique set of properties, which could act as a replacement for human tissue in medical procedures.
Royal Philips unveiled a unique mixed reality concept developed together with Microsoft Corp. for the operating room of the future.
Researchers have developed a new method to guide endovascular instruments into complex vascular structures that were inaccessible to endovascular surgeons until now.
Researchers have been investigating whether artificial intelligence might be used to steer a catheter automatically and reliably to a blocked blood vessel.
A wireless sensor small enough to be implanted in the blood vessels of the human brain could help clinicians evaluate the healing of aneurysms.
Researchers have developed biodegradable microresonators that could soon be used in implants to control the release of painkillers within tissue.
Researchers have developed a new technique of external ventricular drain insertion that involves the use of a mixed-reality holographic computer headset.
Scientists created a flexible ultrasonic patch that non-invasively monitors the blood pressure in major vessels such as the jugular vein and carotid artery.
An engineer designed the first neurosurgical robotic system capable of performing bilateral stereotactic neurosurgery inside a MRI scanner.
Researchers have developed a wearable, non-invasive system to monitor electrical activity in the stomach — essentially an electrocardiogram but for the gastro-intestinal tract.
Less expensive and more realistic 3D models of blood vessels may offer alternative to the commercial standard.
