3.13 Neural networks enable autonomous navigation of catheters
The Fraunhofer-Institut für Produktionstechnik und Automatisierung IPA presented this project at MEDICA 2019.
- Using deep reinforcement learning
- Trained on computer simulation
- The project is scheduled to run until September 2020
- Enables faster navigation
The operation itself, i.e. the removal of the blood clot using the stent retriever, is still performed by the doctor.
