Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgical Tool: Tumors

Tumors generally are identical to healthy nearby tissue, but they feel different. Surgeons often use their fingers to feel the size and shape of what’s to be resected, but palpation is essentially impossible when relying on minimally invasive access. A team of researchers developed a robotic arm compatible with the da Vinci robotic surgical system that can sense how hard or soft a tissue is. The device has an ultrasound transducer on one side and a tactile sensor on the other. Flipping between the two lets you access either modality quickly and compare the images to identify the tumor.
