Two surgeon tested a device that, when attached to everyday eyeglasses, can display fluoroscopic images used for surgical guidance directly to the surgeon.
Emerging technologies are transforming the way surgical procedures are done. We will give an overview on new applications of surgical robotics, immersive realities such as augmented and virtual reality, 3D printing, and digitalization in the OR.
Researchers at the Hamlyn Centre, Imperial College London, have introduced a novel tool for generating accurate endoscopic datasets.
Researchers have found a way to send tiny, soft robots into humans, potentially opening the door for less invasive surgeries and ways to deliver treatments for several conditions.
Linking the human brain to a computer is usually only seen in science fiction, but now scientists have harnessed the power of 3D printing to bring the technology one step closer to reality.
Researchers have developed an robotic system to enhance the safety and efficacy of endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) for the treatment of gastrointestinal cancer.
Artificial intelligence is developing at an enormous speed and intelligent instruments will profoundly change surgery and medical interventions.
One of the crucial future technologies in surgery is Augmented Reality. Most experts agree that AR will increase safety and efficiency, improve surgical training and decrease costs.
In the next-generation operating room interconnected sensors will collect data, analyse it in real-time and make it available to digital assistance functions.
Researchers have developed a surgical robot that improves precision and control of teleoperated surgical procedures.
Researchers have invented a new type of surgical glue that can help join blood vessels and close wounds faster and may also serve as a platform to deliver pain relief drugs.
Robotic surgery for patients with early stage, oropharyngeal squamous cell cancer is associated with improved health outcomes, including better long-term survival.
avateramedical GmbH announced the acquisition of FORWARDttc GmbH, an automation technology company with special focus on robotics hard- and software.
Engineers are developing a 3D printed artificial blood vessel that allows doctors and patients to keep tabs on its health remotely.
Researchers have developed a MR visualisation platform which projects multiple imaging modalities to assist intraoperative surgical guidance.
Researchers have developed an artificial liquid retinal prosthesis to counteract the effects of diseases such as retinitis pigmentosa and age-related macular degeneration.
