We are pleased to announce Professor Dan Stoyanov is one of the featured speakers of the Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics 2021 (#HSMR21).

Professor Stoyanov gave a talk on ‘Towards Understanding Surgical Scenes Using Computer Vision’ followed by a Q&A session.

Abstract

Digital cameras have dramatically changed interventional and surgical procedures. Modern operating rooms utilize a range of cameras to minimize invasiveness or provide vision beyond human capabilities in magnification, spectra or sensitivity.

Such surgical cameras provide the most informative and rich signal from the surgical site containing information about activity and events as well as physiology and tissue function. This talk will highlight some of the opportunities for computer vision in surgical applications and the challenges in translation to clinically usable systems.
