Globally, prostate cancer is one of the most common cancer diagnosed in men and overall. HDR brachytherapy is a form of radiotherapy which involves a thin tube inserted into the prostate gland and a radiation source is then passed through the tube to kill the cancer cells. Traditionally, the ultrasound-guided HDR brachytherapy procedure uses a template grid for needle insertion into the prostate.

 

In this cooperation, BEBIG Medical will work with Biobot Surgical to apply iSR’s obot Mona Lisa 2.0, a robotics-assisted percutaneous surgical system, to automatically guides the needle insertion by a clinician to within 1.0mm* accuracy of the targeted needle position for treatment. The robotic arm allows flexibility of angulated needle trajectory for an optimal treatment plan and avoids critical anatomical structures.
