Fan Cheng Tianji robot on duty: auxiliary diagnosis, accurate operation and the right medicine

Published on:2020-08-07

CNR Beijing, August 6 (Henan TV reporter Wang Shujie) according to the report of the voice of China of the Central Radio and television, "news evening peak", the "robot doctor" will operate on you. Dare you imagine? Recently, the robot doctor "Tianji", which is independently developed and designed by China and has advanced technology in the field of orthopedics, has "worked" in Henan Provincial Peoples hospital. The chief surgeon moved from the operating table to the computer, and his identity changed from "operator" to "supervisor", so as to provide more accurate and effective treatment schemes for patients. What is it like for a robot to do surgery?
"This is the eye of the robot, this host is the brain of the robot, and this is the arm of the robot. It will be of great use in surgery later." In the E30 operating room of Henan Provincial Peoples Hospital, Cai Teng, the attending physician of the second ward of orthopedics, introduced the robot doctor "Tianji" who is about to carry out the operation. It is composed of manipulator host, optical tracking system and console. With its participation, the chief surgeon can move from the operating table to the computer, and his identity will change from "operator" to "supervisor".
Liu Tao, director of the second Department of orthopedics of Henan Provincial Peoples Hospital, said: "Tianji robot is a self-developed robot in China. So far, it is an intelligent platform that can be fully applied in all aspects of orthopedics in the world, including trauma, spine, pelvis, joints and so on. It allows doctors to turn from the operating table to the front of the computer screen. Important optical design, image design and navigation design are all important for tracking It is the latest application in the field of orthopedics. "
This time, the patient underwent minimally invasive surgery for femoral neck fracture. With the assistance of robot, once the previous incision wound of more than ten centimeters was changed, precision surgery could be realized only by 3 to 4 mm, which solved the three technical problems of poor vision, difficult precision and instability of previous orthopedic surgery. But some people have raised questions. Can you rest assured that you give your life to the robot? It is understood that before "Tianji" officially "took the post", it completed many core technical difficulties, such as product system design, positioning module design, system accuracy control, clinical trial and so on. With solid and excellent technology and doctors "wisdom" input, we have practiced "fast, accurate and stable" on the operating table.
Liu Tao, director of the second Department of orthopedics of Henan Provincial Peoples Hospital, said that before the robot surgery, the doctor team will plan the surgical path and command the whole process of the computer system; The optical tracking system has a perspective insight into every depth of the musculoskeletal system and monitors the operation link in real time; The manipulator has flexible movement and stable operation, and can go deep into key areas to implement treatment, so as to reduce the operation difficulty of doctors, shorten important time, and improve the accuracy and feasibility of surgery to a new level. Liu Tao said: "The trauma is very small. We designed the path for operation. The interference to the patient is very small, not to mention a large amount of bleeding. The patient recovers very quickly. Many patients dont feel anything the next day after operation, reaching the international most advanced level. The cost of patients is greatly reduced. Some patients can basically be discharged on the third and fourth day after operation. It overcomes the problems of poor operation and poor medical treatment in the past Fatigue. Its accuracy reaches submillimeter, less than 1mm, 0. 8 mm. This accuracy is beyond the limits of human beings. "
Nowadays, more and more "robot doctors" are taking clinical posts to show their skills. In Henan Provincial Peoples Hospital, the reporter met the robot team, including "Da Vinci", "mazor" and other surgical robots fighting side by side with surgeons; There are also "Watson", "Songyue", "Xiaoyi" and other robots that play an intelligent role in the formulation of diagnosis and treatment plans for cancer patients, rapid ophthalmic diagnosis, intelligent medical guidance and other fields. According to Liu Tao, who has 30 years of clinical work experience, the application of surgical robots has entered the normalization mode. The arrival of robots has improved the work efficiency of doctors and changed the medical experience of patients. Liu Tao said: "I used to think that robots are very far away. Now they have really penetrated into every case and entered the stage of normalization, application, practicality and actual combat. The development of modern medicine has moved towards precision, minimally invasive, intelligent and navigation. Compared with previous medicine, it is a revolutionary progress."
Wang Jingyuan, an associate professor at the school of computer science at Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, said that with the progress of science and technology, robots will have great potential as an auxiliary diagnosis in the medical field in the future. Wang Jingyuan said: "Medical treatment is a very professional field. Traditionally, most of the work in the field of medical innovation is done by professional technicians, that is, our doctors. With the continuous development of information technology, new generation information technologies such as virtual reality, artificial intelligence, big data and robots are increasingly applied to medical assistance to help doctors do some work Repetitive work can not only liberate doctors, but also improve doctors diagnosis and treatment level. I believe that in the future, in the medical industry, there will be more and more fields that can be participated by robots and artificial intelligence technology, such as triage in the hospital, medical imaging, auxiliary film viewing and diagnosis, and now surgical auxiliary robots. Of course, we should also see that there are many challenging problems in the application of robot and artificial intelligence technology to the medical field, including safety problems, explanatory problems, ethical problems, etc. these problems are also the forefront of exploration in the scientific community. I believe that with the continuous development of science and technology, these problems will be solved step by step, Robots and artificial intelligence technology will have a larger and broader space for medical assistance.
