On December 2, visitors flocked to ICCAS on ‘Dies academicus’, the 607th anniversary of the foundation of Leipzig University. Guided tours of the operating room of the future were organized. Alongside staff and students from the university, many prospective students seized this opportunity to learn about the technology of this fully networked demo OR and how it works.
Visitors were also invited to try their hand at surgery on a phantom. In addition, computer scientist Max Rockstroh from ICCAS give a talk in the main lecture hall at the study center at Liebigstrasse 27 entitled ‘The Operating Room as Part of the Team – or How We’re Teaching the OR to Think’. We would like to thank all our visitors for taking the time to come and see us!
