The mission of EndoCAS is to develop breakthrough technologies based on engineering and information technologies to improve the current surgical procedures and reduce their invasiveness by means of an optimal use of medical imaging.
The research areas addressed by the Centre are:
- Development of segmentation software for the generation of patient specific 3D models;
- Surgical navigation systems for mininvasive treatments;
- Robotic surgical guidance;
- Augmented/Mixed reality and simulators for training and optimal planning of surgical interventions.
EndoCAS applies computer assisted surgery (CAS) systems to demonstrate their effectiveness and encourages their market exploitation, offers analysis of the effectiveness and cost-benefit ratio and validation of both commercial and custom-made systems.
