Magnetic sensors for image-guided surgery
Image-guided surgery offers numerous advantages, including the ability of surgeons to navigate their instruments with precision and speed. However, it requires the use of harmful X rays or CT. The EU-funded DEEP FIELD project proposes to replace this type of radiation with magnetic tracking of surgical instruments. Researchers will develop innovative sensors that overcome the distortion issues associated with the use of the magnetic field in surgery. The DEEP FIELD technology is expected to change clinical surgery with applications in cardiovascular navigation, endoscopy and robotic surgery, leading to significantly improved patient outcomes.
