Medical Robotic Section (MRSLab) is aimed at developing innovative methods and devices for clinical and surgical applications.
Main current research topics at MRSLab are:
1) Pre-operative planning
Automatic and intelligent planners based on AI for neurosurgical keyhole interventions (biopsy, DBS electrodes placements and drug therapies), using steerable needles (Alice Segato). Path planning and path re-planning for endovascular catheterization (Zhen_Li). Advanced vessel visualization classification using machine learning approaches (Sara El Hadji). For information, please visit the website EDEN2020 and the one of Atlas.
2) Surgical robotics (training and interventions)
Novel interfaces for improved human robot interaction in surgical applications. Augmented reality (surfaces reconstruction and feature tracking) for increasing the surgical safety in robotic-based interventions using artificial intelligence tools (SMARTsurg) (Ziyang Chen, Ke Fan). Deep learning for structure segmentation and classification (Alessandro Casella, Jorge_Lazo).
3) Human robot interaction
Safe and improved ergonomic collaboration between human and robot (Junhao Zhang, Junling Fu) ( Soheil Gholami, Luca Fortini, Emir Mobedi, Francesco Iodice, Fabio Fusaro, Francesco Tassi, Marta Lagomarsino) (IIT).
