TransEnterix Receives CE Mark for Machine Vision System in Robotic Surgery
The Intelligent Surgical UnitTM Enables Augmented Intelligence on the SenhanceⓇ Surgical System
“Augmented intelligence powered by machine vision will be one of the primary drivers in transforming surgery to enhance the capabilities of surgeons,” said
For the first time in surgery, the ISU’s machine vision capabilities provide the ability to recognize certain objects and locations in the surgical field. This new capability enhances visualization and camera control over currently available surgical technologies, and provides the foundation for additional augmented intelligence capabilities. Additionally, the ISU improves surgical team collaboration by seamlessly sharing the surgeon’s console view in real-time across the entire operating room. Future augmented intelligence features may include 3D point-to-point measurement and anatomical structure identification, further enhancing the digital laparoscopic experience with Senhance.
“Real-time augmented intelligence is a powerful new capability made possible by digitizing surgery,” said Dr.
This Intelligent Surgical Unit is compatible with both the global installed base of Senhance Surgical Systems and with third-party vision systems that are currently supported by Senhance.
