The Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics (HSMR) is now in its 13th year and has provided an annual forum for surgeons and engineers from across the globe to network and explore the latest developments in medical robotics. Every year researchers, clinicians and engineers are invited to submit papers on a range of topics covering clinical specialities in Urology, Cardiac Surgery, Neuro Surgery, Thoracic Surgery, General Surgery, Gynaecology, ENT, Orthopaedic and Paediatric Surgery.
This year we plan to build beyond the previous achievements and take the symposium to even higher successes with the theme of ‘Surgery and Beyond’. We have already received full CPD accreditation from the Royal College of Surgeons and to complement this we are planning a programme with increased focus on clinical practitioner centered talks, workshops and presentations.
Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics 2021: Workshop
Surgical interventions require enormous attention and can be highly challenging due to scene dynamics.
Computer vision methods and augmented reality systems can help surgeons navigate during complex procedures. To this end, the workshop will explore the role of computer vision and augmented reality in surgery and its potential to increase efficiency, precision, and reproducibility in surgical procedures, ultimately ensuring patient safety.
We will talk about the computer vision and augmented reality approaches that can complement the surgical team by assisting the surgical procedures during complex tasks. The workshop will feature academics and researchers from leading international institutions covering the latest developments and specific use cases on these topics, and a panel discussion to address the potential of these developments, challenges and future directions.
Objectives and learning outcomes
- The attendees will learn how computer vision and augmented reality can help surgeons navigate during complex procedures.
- The attendees will learn how computer vision and augmented reality can increase efficiency and precision in surgical procedures.
