super-modern smart surgical system

Iran says its super-modern smart surgical system could be used in ear, nose and pharynx surgery as well as operations on the brain and nervous system.

Iran has unveiled a super-modern surgical system which it says mergers most updated hardware and software technologies in the field of medicine.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad unveiled the smart surgical navigation system produced by Iranian experts in a ceremony in Tehran’s Imam Khomeini hospital on Thursday, IRNA reported.

The system in question could be applied for surgical operations on the ears, the pharynx, the nose as well as the brain and the nervous system.

The device makes use of modern medical technologies together with advanced display and data analysis techniques on images obtained through traditional methods, such as X-ray computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), to facilitate diagnosis and treatment processes through a precise detection technology.

The system provides surgeons with a detailed environment by enabling them to observe microscopic and endoscopic images on the screen.

The device assists surgery teams to compare the previous and present states of patients in a meticulous yet convenient way.

It also enables surgeons to simulate the surgery process in advance of the actual operation, analyze its possible consequences and adopt a different approach if required.

During the Thursday ceremony, Ahmadinejad praised the new system as a highly significant move and a major progress in the field of medical science and technology.
