Dr Jim Adshead, Consultant Urological Robotic Surgeon at the Lister Hospital in the UK, has been working on the development of SENSEI® from very early concept. Hear about his involvement in the development of the technology and how he believes radio-guided surgery has the potential to transform outcomes for prostate cancer patients.
SENSEI® is an advanced guidance system designed for intracavity radio-guided surgery. The system's miniaturized gamma probe enables unprecedented dexterity and anatomic reach, expanding the field of view and enabling the quick localization of radioactive hotspots. Suitable for minimally-invasive and robot-assisted surgical procedures.
Designed in close collaboration with leading surgeons and nuclear medicine physicians. The system is easy to use in the operating room with a clear audible and graphic display. SENSEI® can be integrated with an external display on surgical robotic platforms.
The single-use, disposable probe measures just over 40mm, ideal for both intracavity manual and robotic laparoscopic procedures. Attached to a 3-metre lightweight cable, the probe can be easily extracted through a standard 12mm entry port.
When used with an articulating grasper, this miniature probe allows for unparalleled intra-cavity maneuverability and dexterity.
With multigrip orientations, the probe can provide six degrees of freedom within the surgical field, reaching all areas of interest.
