Posted by BK Ultrasound on Nov 15, 2016 12:19:43 PM

The following story is an exerpt from a 2012 article,"Ultrasound Opens New Doors in Robotic Surgery," by Lisa Fratt of Health Imaging.

Since its introduction more than a decade ago, robotic-assisted surgery has stood out as a game-changer. The robotic console provides a robust platform to enable minimally invasive procedures in urologic, cardiothoracic, gynecologic and general surgical procedures. Today, robotic surgery is witnessing an evolution. The most recent surgical ultrasound systems, specifically BK Ultrasound systems for robotic surgery, are ushering in a new level of precision and diagnostic confidence. Intraoperative robotic-assisted ultrasound helps surgeons to perform more complex procedures robotically with potentially improved outcomes, particularly in radical prostatectomy and partial nephrectomy.
