Coronavirus Update:What patients and families need to know
The Children's National Research Institute
Read more about the non-spherical balloon that can be implanted in a patient's gastric cavity, which limits what a patient can eat and blocks biochemical signals that indicate hunger.
Discover how researchers created an augmented reality hybrid visualization system that integrates real-time endoscopic video with live ultrasound image with superior electromagnetic and optical image tracking, refinement and calibration for flat or angled endoscopes.
Read more about the automated video laryngoscope for endotracheal tube (ET) placement that allows operation of device with one hand and allowing the physician to simultaneously administer appropriate pressure on the larynx for successful intubation without relying on another individual to perform the entire procedure.
Discover how researchers at Children's National Hospital and University of Maryland have developed a Robotic Assisted Surgery software system that can detect, diagnose and complete a surgical task by recommending autonomous versus manual tasks and smoothly transitioning between the two.
Check out this system for a single port laser speckle contrast image analysis in laparoscopy which offers a seamlesssolution to the technical difficulties associated with visualizing blood flow and tissue perfusion using current laser speckle and fluorescent imaging.
Discover how researchers have created videogame-based portable residential-use and clinical-use ankle robotic rehabilitation devices designed to activate and strengthen foot and ankle muscles, as well as increase range of motion, dexterity and gait in patients with ankle weakness.
Check out how researchers developed a needle guidance system compatible with MRI and CT imaging systems that can be used for procedures such as arthrography thereby eliminating multiple radiation exposing steps, especially in pediatric patients.
Learn more about our MRI/CT- compatible and patient-mountable robot that allows physicians to target anatomy of interest during an MRI or CT guided procedure.
Learn more about this preferential imaging system that offers a full‐field birefringence surgical neural map within the operative field which is a significant improvement over current techniques involving a surgeon’s unaided eyes, and therefore aims to drastically reduce nerve injuries.
Read information about a novel surgical tool that was developed for implanting cardiac therapy devices, preventing the need for invasive open chest surgery procedures.
