Robotics Infomatic: Learn Basics about this Field Before Breakfast
by John Bennett MD
This field took me by surprise in two ways; first of all, surgeons are not noted for their progressive ways to adopt new technology; it must have been a brawl in the trenches of surgery departments to get surgeons, even to try this technology; then to get Hospital Administration to buy the idea. Secondly I was surprised to find out that Medical Robotics is MORE than surgical robots; it encompasses many fantastic new things, many of which are bing development in Robotics Research at Carnegie Mellon. Do yourself a favor, to look at the wide breadth of research and development occurring at that university today.
