RESIDENT EDUCATION

Resident education involves multiple evaluations of resident performance with laparoscopic trainers, robotic drills as well as IRB approved studies that evaluate surgical performance in the setting of fatigue. Our drill set will provide a framework for future assessment of performance in robotics

A conditional Hidden Markov Model was designed to classify the performance into experts and novices. The classifier was trained on the first fifty percent of the data and tested on the remaining fifty percent. The tests below demonstrate initial findings with Mobile Precision Beads, Simple Rope Pass , Beaded String Pass , Russian Roulette, Minefield, and various suturing exercises.

 

Robotic suturing is facilitated with the increased dexterity of the DaVinci system with 7 degrees of freedom at the distal joint.
The bead pass is used to evaluate how surgeons are able to use visual cues to overcome the lack of haptic feedback with the system.

The Beaded String Pass demonstrates the need to combine a complex task that overcomes the limited haptics.

Russian Roulette is a complex task that involves camera adjustments as well as manual dexterity to align the pegs in the correct location.
