  title={Computer-Integrated Surgery and Medical Robotics},
  author={Russell N. Taylor and Leo Joskowicz},

Munich Institute of Robotics and Machine Intelligence (MIRMI) Technical University of Munich.

The importance of human- robot interaction is discussed and technological re- quirements and challenges in making human-centered robot platforms for medical applications is addressed.

Accurate geometry reconstruction of vascular structures using implicit splines

The author states that the present manuscript aims to provide a history of web exceptionalism from 1989 to 2002, a period chosen to explore its roots as well as specific cases up to and including the year in which descriptions of “Web 2.0” began to circulate.

Recent advances in robot-assisted echography: combining perception, control and cognition

A thorough study of the recent research advances in the field of perception, control and cognition techniques used in RAE systems is presented, and significant future research directions in this field have been identified as cognitive computing, operational skills transfer, and commercially feasible system design.

Finite element method stiffness analysis of a novel telemanipulator for minimally invasive surgery

This paper presents the concept of a novel telemanipulator for minimally invasive surgery, along with numerical analysis to validate the main system performance, and the identification of the main factors that impact the position accuracy of the robot.

A Literature Survey of Ultrasound and Computed Tomography-Based Cardiac Image Registration

A literature survey of Ultrasound and Computed Tomography -based cardiac image registration is presented, finding that a majority of research in medical image registration are suitably categorized based on these factors: anatomy, imaging modality and image registration methods.

Medical Visualization and Simulation for Customizable Surgical Guides

An extensive computerassisted surgery (CAS) literature study is performed, a novel optimization technique for customizable surgical guides (CSG) is developed, and three visualization techniques are introduced to make the planning more realistic and allow for remote visualization.

Hybrid Parallel-Serial Micromanipulator for Assisting Ophthalmic Surgery

This thesis introduces a novel micro-manipulator which up-skills the ophthalmologists for performing vitreo-retinal surgery and consists of precise movement, tremor cancellation, motion scaling and virtual fixture control.

Preliminary Development of a Workstation for Craniomaxillofacial Surgical Procedures: Introducing a Computer-Assisted Planning and Execution System

The initial development of the CAPE workstation demonstrated that integration of computer planning and intraoperative navigation for facial transplantation are possible with submillimeter accuracy.

Ancillary Procedures Necessary for Translational Research in Experimental Craniomaxillofacial Surgery

Face-jaw-teeth transplantation in swine is a complicated procedure that demands special attention to airway, feeding, and intravascular access, and it is critical that each ancillary procedure be performed by a dedicated team familiar with relevant anatomy and protocol.

Computer-assisted, Le Fort-based, face–jaw–teeth transplantation: a pilot study on system feasiblity and translational assessment

The results indicate the viability of the CAPE system for assisting with Le Fort-based FJTT and demonstrate the potential in human surgery.

Distributed Modular Computer-Integrated Surgical Robotic Systems: Implementation Using Modular Software and Networked Systems

This paper introduces the architecture of the distributed, modular systems for sensing, control, and processing, and presents the system’s current state and discusses plans for future improvements and extensions.

Intraoperative localization using a three-dimensional optical digitizer

A system employing an infrared optical digitizer to indicate position on either CT, MRI, or PET scans, consisting of a base ring attached to the patient's head during surgery, hand held instruments of any type, a camera array, and a computer display.

Optimal motion control for teleoperated surgical robots

This paper addresses the problem of optimal motion control for teleoperated surgical robots, which must maneuver in constrained workspaces. The control problem is determining how best to use the

Remote palpation technology

The authors are working to develop new technology to rectify this sensory deficit by relaying tactile information from the surgical site to the surgeon by developing a variety of tactile sensors that can be mounted in a probe or surgical instrument.

Robot assisted knee surgery

Discusses establishing a force control strategy incorporating active motion constraint and considers problems with conventional surgery, robot assisted surgery, and control strategy.

A telerobotic assistant for laparoscopic surgery

A new generation of "intelligent" surgical systems that can work cooperatively with a human surgeon to off-load routine tasks, reduce the number of people needed in the operating room, and provide new capabilities that complement the surgeon's own skills are developed.

Development of a new high-dexterity manipulator for robot-assisted microsurgery

The goal is a dexterity-enhancing master-slave that will refine the scale of current microsurgeries, and minimize effects of involuntary tremor and jerk in surgeons' hands, which will result in new procedures of the eye, ear, brain and other critical faculties being possible.

Computer-assisted total knee replacement arthroplasty

Computer-Integrated Surgery: Technology and Clinical Applications

In Computer-Integrated Surgery leading researchers and clinical practitioners describe the exciting new partnership that is being forged between surgeons and machines such as computers and robots, enabling them to perform certain skilled tasks better than either can do alone.
