Reduced patient trauma and recovery time combined with improved precision and dexterity for micro-scale tasks are major benefits of robotic assisted Minimal Invasive Surgery. Prof Guang-Zhong Yang will outline the key clinical challenges and research opportunities for MICCAI (The Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention) community. MICCAI is developing biomimetic robotic systems towards the future evolution of Minimal Invasive Surgery based on truly flexible access technologies. The talk will cover the latest developments in fully articulated, bio-inspired (e.g. Snake) robot platforms that facilitate intra-luminal or extra-luminal anatomical curved pathway navigation with integrated sensing and navigation. Through this ‘feast’ of new technological developments and challenges, the talk will highlight the role of MICCAI in reshaping the future of Minimal Invasive Surgery.
