  • Surgical robotics and image guided therapy in pediatric surgery: emerging and converging minimal access technologies. Seminars in pediatric surgery Chandra, V., Dutta, S., Albanese, C. T. 2006; 15 (4): 267-275

    Abstract:

    Minimal access surgery (MAS) is now commonplace in the armamentarium of the pediatric surgeon, and is being applied to a growing list of pediatric surgical diseases. Robot-assisted surgery and image guided therapy (IGT) have evolved as innovative minimal access approaches, and hold the promise of advancing MAS far beyond what is currently possible. The aims of this article are to describe the currently available robotic, and image guided therapy systems, review their present and potential applications, and discuss the future directions of these converging technologies.
