Dear all,

Applications are now open for the 2020 King's Summer School on Surgical & Interventional Engineering (6th June to 12th June 2020): https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__bit.ly_36usRDs&d=DwIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=CLcZcxlU_6ZWqxxpkxZ0W9-yyFpqff3jZ6tekKxpMDk&s=Bj5AUusdsYYZhhNwnnrL02PY0ctx8PcbgVasyjh8RLA&e= 

Summary follows:

Surgical and Interventional Engineering (SIE) is an integral part of endeavours to achieve cognitive sensor-guided robotically assisted surgery. SIE encompasses interventional planning making use of AI and computational modelling, and the development of miniature surgical tools and imaging instrumentation for safe and effective navigation and manipulation.

SIE research aims to optimise surgery and intervention for timely, personalised, and cost-effective therapies in the operating theatre of the future. The School involves invited lectures, hands-on demonstrations, workshops on medical device development, and mini-projects for familiarisation with the process of engineering innovation in surgery and intervention.

The Summer School include a series of lectures on the topics of novel instrumentation for optimal surgery, and navigation algorithms for precise interventions. Further, it include hands-on projects using state-of-the-art surgical equipment ranging from imaging systems to robots.
