After a decade, TUM is nowadays ready to celebrate its 10th edition, on January 2022.
In the last ten years, we worked to improve and sharpen the technologies for laparoscopic and robotic urologic surgery.
Starting from vision of 3D guided surgeries, 4K vision and highly technological transmission system, we tried to offer the participants the most immersive experience possible since from the first editions of our meeting.
Then, thanks to the study of 3D virtual models of the organs derived from standard imaging, we explored many fields, from augmented reality to mixed reality surgery, with the aim to improve planning and intraoperative guidance following the information given by virtual models on the real anatomy, maximizing the surgeon awareness in performing the interventions.
These technologies have been performed first in a semi-automatic setting, and then with augmented reality platforms driven by artificial intelligence technology.
Indeed, with the aid given by artificial intelligence in refining precision details of the augmented reality procedures, it is nowadays possible to perform many steps of such “super-vision” guided surgery automatically, without needing any hand-assistance.
At last, due to the pandemic, we developed a dedicated platform to allow the participants all over the world to attend our technological event, implementing the broadcasted surgeries and exploring also the field of tele-mentoring application of 3D virtual guidance with remote control.
In this tenth year, the surgeons who joined us in the past, will be invited to test once again the newest innovations of the last two years, implemented and enriched in the last months, refined in details and usability, in order to test their duplicability and application.
From augmented reality and 3D virtual models perfectioned as well as the implementation of artificial intelligence we hope to make other steps further the “micro-surgery and automatic image-guidance warning systems.
I’m sure that this special edition of TUM, will be a great success for both the great number of surgical innovative technologies presented as well as for the prestigious faculty of surgeons coming from all over the world.
Hoping that the attendees will enjoy our ambitious program.
I welcome all of you to Turin for this 10th edition of TUM!
