The Surgical and Interventional Engineering course at King's College London includes a series of lectures on the topics of novel instrumentation for optimal surgery, navigation algorithms for precise interventions, and the regulatory and commercial aspects to bring these technologies to the clinic.


Surgical and Interventional Engineering (SIE) is an integral part of advancing the state of medical interventions through integrating novel sensing, robotics, and artificial intelligence. SIE research aims to optimise surgery and intervention for timely, personalised, and cost-effective therapies in the operating theatre of the future.

SIE encompasses interventional planning making use of AI and computational modelling, and the development of miniature surgical tools and imaging instrumentation for safe and effective navigation and manipulation of tissue.

SIE also interconnects classical medical imaging and navigation technology with novel molecular-level imaging sensors and dexterous actuators on a high-speed network bus to leverage interoperability, off-site computational capabilities, and BigData streams to deliver AI-based intraoperative decision support and surgical assistance.


The Surgical and Interventional Engineering course at King's College London includes hands-on projects with advanced surgical instrumentation setups, such as: KUKA LBR Med R700 manipulator for laparoscopic interventions Medtronic Stealth station for neurosurgical interventions Leica Proveo 8 and Enfocus OCT for ophthalmic interventions LED-based photoacoustic and US imaging for surgical guidance Hyper-spectral imaging for tumour resection guidance.
