Scientists have paired 3D-printed, living human brain vasculature with advanced computational flow simulations to better understand tumor cell attachment to blood vessels.
Researchers have developed a surgical robot that improves precision and control of teleoperated surgical procedures.
In the next-generation operating room interconnected sensors will collect data, analyse it in real-time and make it available to digital assistance functions.
Scientists have developed the world's first fully integrated bionic arm prosthesis that is ready to use – in keeping with the motto "Plug and Play".
Sending small electrical currents to the fingertips of someone operating a robotic arm can help surgeons during robot-assisted procedures.
Thanks to smart software doctors will soon be able to detect early signs of esophageal cancer in patients with so-called Barrett’s esophagus.
Researchers have developed a gynecological surgical assistance robot for uterine operations.
Researchers have been investigating whether artificial intelligence might be used to steer a catheter automatically and reliably to a blocked blood vessel.
Scientists have made a decisive contribution to improving complex surgical training by developing a very realistic prostate phantom.
Researchers from Thomas Jefferson University use machine learning on ultrasound images of thyroid nodules to predict risk of malignancy.
Machine learning-guided virtual reality simulators can help neurosurgeons develop the skills they need before they step in the operating room.
Clinical studies on robot-assisted surgery for indications in the thorax and abdomen have so far shown few advantages for this cost-intensive surgical method.
Researchers have created a new app that can detect fluid behind the eardrum by simply using a piece of paper and a smartphone’s microphone and speaker.
With the integration of HaptX Gloves, FundamentalVR demonstrates the ability to integrate its Surgical Haptic Intelligence Engine with third-party devices.
At ECR 2019, researchers talked about the practical applications of mixed realities in medical education and training as well as preprocedural planning and visualization during a surgery.
The sensor system implant provides actionable information to optimize the therapy for patients afflicted with glaucoma.
“HandsOn.surgery", the prototype of a virtual surgery trainer helps surgeons prepare for individual patient cases prior to surgery, and enables them to practice the surgery.
Three patients with chronic paraplegia were able to walk over ground thanks to precise electrical stimulation of their spinal cords via a wireless implant.
Orthopaedic surgeons can now get their hands on the bones of patients before they reach the operating table – with the help of 3D printing.
Researchers use augmented reality tools to connect health care professionals in war zones, natural disasters and in rural areas with more experienced surgeons and physicians around the world.
