An electronic “nose” is capable of detecting with 86% accuracy when a lung transplant is beginning to fail.
Emerging technologies are transforming the way surgical procedures are done. We provide an overview on new applications of surgical robotics, immersive realities such as augmented and virtual reality, 3D printing, and digitalization in the OR.
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.
Marc Knebel, head of Medical Systems at Evonik, explains the benefits and applications of the new high-performance polymer VESTAKEEP Care M40 3DF.
At Shift Medical, more than 60 leading medical XR experts will present and discuss the latest developments on the use of digital technologies such as virtual reality, augmented reality and mixed reality in medicine.
A simulation engine predicts the forces acting on a knife as it cuts through soft materials, a capability that could have applications for safer surgical robotics.
The Scar Free Foundation has launched a research programme that aims to revolutionise surgeons’ ability to reconstruct nose and ear cartilage in patients affected by facial difference.
The team of the Dynamic HIPS are working on a hip replacement simulator that will help future surgeons to practice the intervention.
The MasSpec Pen has shown to accurately identify tissues and surgical margins directly in patients and differentiate healthy and cancerous tissue from banked pancreas samples.
New research could help surgeons perform liver resections with greater accuracy and deliver improved patient outcomes.
X-ray vision, context-sensitive guidance, coordinator, training assistant and more: augmented reality (AR) has hit the OR.
Researchers have used 3D bioprinting technology to create custom-shaped cartilage. They aim to make it easier for surgeons to safely restore the features of skin cancer patients living with nasal cartilage defects after surgery.
