Confidence‐based Robotic Surgery

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.

Dye-free Visualization in Laparoscopy

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.

MRI and CT Compatible Needle Guidance Toolkit

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.

Non‐Invasive, Intra‐Operative, Nerve Identification

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.
