Reminder Subject: TALK: GIFT-Surg - Transforming surgery on unborn Babies

This talk will provide an overview of our Guided Instrumentation for Fetal Therapy and Surgery project (GIFT-Surg). In collaboration with KU Leuven, GIFT-Surg is working towards transforming surgery on unborn babies. Our ambition within GIFT-Surg is to deliver a new platform for fetal therapy and surgery through a unique combination of innovative interventional imaging systems and advanced surgical tools offering new levels of visualisation, flexibility and precision. This talk will highlight the combination of multidisciplinary expertise already involved in our project on the development of the main building blocks for this platform. Results on the design of new surgical manipulators, new intra-operative imaging devices including miniature photo-acoustics probe, new data fusion, tracking and segmentation tools and new surgical planning and guidance solutions will be presented.
