Gepalon Networks Ltd is a rapidly growing UK-based SME specialising in MedTech. Gepalon is reducing risk in surgery by enabling experts to use Remote Surgical Oversight and Video Telestration with the goal of providing augmented guidance in real-time to surgeons performing keyhole surgery.
Gepalon develops segmentation models with Peltarion to assist surgeons during keyhole surgery
About the project
To aid surgeons, Gepalon is now working towards providing assistance during keyhole surgeries, either with digitally-enhanced vision or remote guidance.
The collaboration with Peltarion was established in order to investigate, test and show the viability of deep-learning for identifying segments related to human tissue and organs in videos of laparoscopy procedures.
The first project was concluded recently with promising results. With this, a segmentation AI model has been developed and trained to assist surgeons in the identification of particular tissues or organs and differentiate the contours of surrounding organs, blood vessels or tissues involved in keyhole surgical procedures.
