Bryn successfully defends his thesis entitled "Enabling Technologies for Image-Guided Interventions with Minimally Invasive sầu Surgical Robots." Congratulations, Dr. Pitt!


Accuracy of Touch-Based Registration During Robotic Image-Guided Partial Nephrectomy Before và After Tumor Resection in Validated Phantoms (Kavousham et al.), was featured as the cover article in Journal of Endourology Volume 35, Number 3, published March 2021. The proposes a touch-based registration system lớn intraoperatively update a 3 chiều kidney mã sản phẩm with subsurface features, making image guidance feasible during robotic partial nephrectomy.

Our introductory robotics course was a smashing success this year! Eleven girls at Harpeth Hall, a local high school, learned the basics of robotics & programming using the MED Lab"s custom made, open source pen drawing robot platsize. The HarpBot, while capable of drawing the image below, was programmed by the girls lớn beat you in Hangman, the classic chalkboard word guessing game.
