Robotic ultrasound helps identify tumors during kidney cancer surgery
from Science World Report
A robotic ultrasound may be able to help identify tumors during kidney cancer surgery, according to researchers at Henry Ford Hospital. Kidney surgeons who perform the ultrasound robotically have direct control over the painstaking procedure instead of having to rely on an assistant for part of the task, which can be difficult and possibly dangerous. The researchers compared the robotic ultrasound probe to the same procedure using a laparoscopic ultrasound probe that requires an assistant to guide the probe for the surgeon. At the end of the study, the researchers compared both of the two methods to determine which would provide the best results.
