Ability in medical technology, balanced with the running progress of communication technology. Imagine 1 to 2 years from now. Surgeon will be replaced with a surgical robot. A doctor is only playing in front of a touch screen and not touch their patients. Perhaps the computer will be more difficult to understand in the future.
Next few articles that I find interesting about the surgeon today.
Oh boy, from the looks of that picture, the only perquisites for using the updated da Vinci Si surgical system are video game skills, a preference for interacting with the physical world on a high-def display, and an abnormal interest in robots. Sound like anyone you know? Intuitive Surgical's latest robotic system features two separate HD optical channels that the manufacturer claims will give "highly accurate depth perception" when merged. The surgeon console features touchpad control of the video, audio, and system settings while providing "precise, dexterous control" over an extensive array of surgical tools held by the robotic flanges. Perfect for all your minimally invasive, WebMD-inspired home surgery needs, when not performing transplants at County. Check the video after the break; 'amazing' is an understatement.
