Prof. Andreas Melzer is co-organizer and tutor of the Image Guided Therapies (IGT) – Workshop on June 28, 2017, which takes place in the scope of the 10th Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics in London. His session deals with the topic “Ultrasound and MR guided Focused Ultrasound therapy: SonoRay”.

Program workshop

Under the motto “Bringing technology to humans” newest developments and trends of the man-machine interaction are presented and discussed at this year’s Future Congress of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) in Bonn. The ICCAS is represented with an interactive exhibit of the joint project “BIOPASS” on the theme island “Experimental Learning”. Here, visitors can test a new navigation assistance system for the minimally invasive endoscopc surgery. The system adapts individually to the patient and the current needs and problem-solving strategies of the surgeon.
