Lighting up the operating theatre
September 12, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Dig deeper into the world of advance operating theatre and robotics made for effective surgery. Join the inaugral lecture with Daniel Elson, a Professor in the Hamlyn Centre for Robotic Surgery, Institute of Global Health Innovation and Department of Surgery and Cancer, Imperial College London as he dives into the topic of Light-based technologies such as fluorescence, multispectral and polarisation resolved imaging are opening up the possibility for in vivo tissue characterization and image-guided surgery using live information feedback. Rather than relying on the naked eye or preoperative MRI or CT scan data, surgeons in the future operating theatre will see an augmented reality view of the margins of diseased tissues or tumours at the time of the surgery. However, there are many challenges, particularly in acquiring and interpreting data from patients.
A drinks reception will follow the lecture at 18:30 on the Level 2 Concourse outside the lecture theatre.
