BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to develop a multidexterous robot capable of generating the required forces and speeds to perform surgical tasks intra-abdominally. Current laparoscopic surgical robots are expensive, bulky, and fundamentally constrained by a small entry incision. A new approach to minimally invasive surgery places the robot completely(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The introduction of new surgical techniques has made training in laparoscopic procedures a necessity for the practicing surgeon, but acquisition of new surgical skills is a formidable task. This study was conducted to assess the impact of advanced laparoscopic workshops on caseload patterns of practicing surgeons. METHODS After(More)
Central axis percentage depth dose values and isodose curves for the bremsstrahlung beam from a 2.5 MV Van de Graaff generator were measured with a water phantom at 100 cm target-to-surface distance. Tissue-air ratios were calculated from the central axis depth dose data. Use of the 2.5 MV percentage depth dose values are necessary for treatment planning(More)
