True surgical planning.

Carefully cutting open the cadaver’s nose, the experienced surgeon points to the major vessels that had been invaded and lectures on the operation procedures while a group of medical students watch intently. They all wish they could get enough practice on the body before they enter the real world and operate on living patients. But cadavers are expensive, and pathologies cannot be ordered. But things don’t get much better when they start to practice on their own. Every patient has a unique pathology, and for surgical planning, surgeons only have the MRI/CAT data on the screen. In the words of Mark Roe, founder and CEO of Fusetec, “Football players train on weekdays and play on the weekend. Surgeons play and play and play.”
