As the number and complexity of robotic surgical procedures continues to grow, so do the sophistication of the surgical devices themselves.
By Emmet Cole

A consortium of European researchers from the commercial and academic robotics communities has developed a robot designed to help surgeons perform delicate, keyhole neurosurgical procedures. The resulting ROBOCAST system (for ROBOt and sensors integration for Computer-Assisted Surgery and Therapy) promises to enhance surgical planning, provide trajectory targeting beyond the capabilities of human surgeons, and supply surgeons with haptic feedback to improve their performance.
