Jelle Ruurda (UMC Utrecht), Maureen van Eijnatten and Josien Pluim (both from Eindhoven University of Technology) have received a grant of 1 milion euro via the KIC call ‘Key enabling technologies for minimally invasive interventions in healthcare’. The project “INTRA-SURGE- for the future of surgery” was prepared with seed money from the alliance’s Artificial Intelligence programme.

This project aims to improve surgeons’ orientation and ability to recognize vital anatomical structures during complex procedures by developing machine learning for surgical phase and anatomy recognition. A laboratory proof-of-concept will be built and the targeted required accuracy and speed will be evaluated, for which videos and CT scans are available.
