On June 24, scientists from the SONO-RAY-group will present how robot systems can support the ultrasound-guided removal of tissue samples in the final of the Surgical Robot Challenge in London. Here, the world’s leading research groups compete in the field of robot applications for surgery.
The competition will be held as part of the renowned international Hamlyn Symposium with the support of KUKA AG.
The exhibit at LBR iiwa 7 has already been successfully validated together with radiologists from Leipzig University Hospital. The funds for the robotic arms were provided by the Saxon State Ministry of Science and the Arts (SMWK). The winner will be announced at the International Robotics Showcase, the closing ceremony of the UK Robotics Week. The prize money amounts to 10,000 GBP.
