Endoscopic prostate surgery performed on a first human-like phantom

A team of scientists headed by Dr. Tian Qiu, leader of the Cyber Valley Biomedical Microsystems research group, and Professor Peer Fischer from the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart have made a decisive contribution to improving complex surgical training by developing a very realistic prostate phantom. They then gave the 3D printed model to a medical team from the University of Freiburg, which practiced the surgical removal of the gland. To quantitatively evaluate the results, the group of scientists developed an automatic system to provide feedback to the trainee surgeon immediately after the training session – something that would be impossible with real tissue.
