Robotic Surgery
Childress, Vincent W.
Technology Teacher, v66 n5 p9-13 Feb 2007
The medical field has many uses for automated and remote-controlled technology. For example, if a tissue sample is only handled in the laboratory by a robotic handling system, then it will never come into contact with a human. Such a system not only helps to automate the medical testing process, but it also helps to reduce the chances of contamination. Remote-controlled surgery, or robotic surgery, is another big advancement in the medical field. In this article, the author discusses the immediate uses and potential applications of robotic surgery. (Contains 5 figures and 4 resources.)
