3D imaging in robot-assisted partial nephrectomy

In a presentation at the 19th Meeting of the European Association of Urology (EAU) Section of Oncological Urology, the role of augmented reality in robot-assisted partial nephrectomy was discussed. Augmented reality was defined as the superimposition of 3-dimensional (3D) virtual models over the real anatomy of patients. This approach, using a specifically constructed platform, provides […]

3D modelling of kidney tumours

Surgeons use three-dimensional (3D) models to improve their understanding of the structure (anatomy) of the kidney. A recent trial published in European Urology Focus last month looked at how 3D modelling could help to predict surgical outcomes after robot-assisted partial nephrectomy. Sixty-nine patients with small renal mass (T1-T2) who were scheduled to have robot-assisted partial […]
