  • In the last century, medicine showed considerable advancements in terms of new technologies, devices and diagnostic/therapeutic strategies. Those advantages led to a significant reduction of invasiveness and an improvement of surgical outcomes. In this framework, a computer-assisted surgical robotic platform able to perform non-invasive Focused Ultrasound Surgery (FUS) - the FUTURA platform - has the ambitious goal to improve accuracy, safety and flexibility of the treatment, with respect to… CONTINUE READING
