Led by Nobuhiko Hata, the focus areas of the Intraoperative Devices TRD are:

  • An Intraoperative needle guidance system for prostate biopsy that models needle deflection and derives optimal insertion paths for in-bore MRI-guided prostate interventions. 

  • An augmented reality guided navigation system for thoracoscopic lung surgery with compensation for lung deformation.

  • Implantable microdevices with integrated retrievability for difficult-to-access tissues, such as the brain.
