Emerging Image-Guided and Robot-Assisted Surgery (Technical Insights)

  • ID: 365495
  • March 2006
  • Frost & Sullivan

This research service titled Emerging Image-guided and Robot-assisted Surgery provides an overview of technologies that can change the landscape of image-guided and robotic surgical methods and covers the key developers and their developments. In this research service, Frost & Sullivan's expert analysts thoroughly examine the following applications: surgical navigation systems, surgical robots, automated surgical software, and minimally invasive surgery.


The following technologies are covered in this research:
-Surgical Robots: These are mechanical devices that provide assistance to surgeons, while letting the human staff concentrate on more crucial aspects of the surgery.
-Surgical Navigation Systems: These systems provide real-time imaging capability during surgery for surgical navigation and planning.
-Real Time Imaging Systems: These systems allow surgeons to study real-time three-dimensional (3D) images. This makes it easier for a surgeon to access the surgical site as well as abnormalities, which cannot be seen through naked eyes.
-Minimally Invasive Surgical Concepts: These concepts ensure that the surgical procedures are much easier READ MORE >
