IO Surgical Research
SEE TO SAVE

Our goal is the use in Augmented Reality of 3D-anatomical models, starting from CT and MRI images, creating a real-time intracorporeal navigation system applied to Robotic and Laparoscopic Oncological Surgery.

The research project, and related patented technology, has its experimental field of application in the urological field, in kidney and prostate cancer, but it can be applied in other surgical disciplines.

Contemporary oncological surgery has entered “precision surgery” era which, through a series of tailor-made operating procedures, combines the maximum efficacy of the treatment with a minimum impact on the functionality of the organs and on the quality of life of the patient.

IO Surgical Research was born from the collaboration between the Urological Clinic in San Martino Polyclinic of Genoa, the University of Genoa, Mixura and DigitalTree Innovation Habitat, and developed the idea of ​​creating a coherent interaction in real-time between holograms of anatomical structures and live organs, such as kidney and prostate, during robotic assisted  laparoscopic surgical procedures.

IO SEE

Creation and use of 3d models

Creation and use of 3D-models in computer graphics of internal organs at an individual level.

Transposition of these 3D-models into a framework  for their representation in an Augmented Reality application.

2

IO MATCH

Real-time calculation and analysis of the organ's posture in the operative phase.

Coupling of the particular 3D-model in visual overlap with the relative organ in the operating field.

3

IO MOVE

Real-time update of the 3D-model of the organ in AR in order to maintain correspondence with the posture and deformation of the real organ during the surgical procedure.

FIELD OF APPLICATION

The project has a wide-ranging application in healthcare, in Robotic-laparoscopy, non-Robotic laparoscopy, in open surgery, also in the definition of pre-operative strategies and in training procedures;

IO Surgical's goal is also to produce a Simulator that can be used, as a flight-simulator, in training and up-skilling courses.

Team

Team is made up of a dedicated multi-disciplinary research group, that experiments by operating daily in the operating room in the Hospital with the DaVinci Robot and using close synergy of medical-surgical and bio-engineering skills.
