Investigating robot-assisted thermal ablation of complex liver malignancies in a perfused ex-vivo model

Research partner:

ARTORG Center for Biomedical Engineering Research – Multidisciplinary research team bridging the gap between university, clinical and industry knowledge

Implementation partner:

CASCINATION AG – Medical device development expert and pioneer in stereotactic image-guidance and robotic surgery

Project description:

Current clinical challenges of thermal ablation treatment can be surpassed through synchronous robot-assisted probe retraction and energy modulation. Various ablation volume shapes will be tested in a lifelike environment using perfused ex-vivo livers.
