Future Vision in Surgery: Let the Podcasts Begin!
Here it is folks, docinthemachine’s first podcast to play on the site.Â This piece is near and dear to my heart.Â Â The Topic is “Future Vision” – and it’s about the coming radical transformation of surgery.Â I review how endoscopy allowed us to move from invasive to minimaly invasive surgery.Â What’s next?Â The transformation to microinvasive surgery (miniaturized robotic rovers inside the body) and non-invasive surgery (3D reconstructed diagnostic imaging and therapeutics via powerful computers).Â

This podcast was an interiew I did at the 35th annual AAGL conference in Las Vegas.Â Coming soon I will post my keynote lecture on this topic with powerpoint and videos along with the entire plenary session on this topic featuring Dr. Chutkin (GI swallowable pill cams), Barish (radiology virtual imaging), and Andy Van Dam (yes the founder of sigggraph on virtual reality data manipulation).Â

I hope you enjoy these as much as I did making them!
