Joannis Katsoulis: Accuracy of guided surgery
- Accuracy of guided vs. free-hand surgery
- Importance of the human factor in the equation

- Nobel Biocare New York Global Symposium 2016
What is the accuracy of guided surgery? How accurate is free hand surgery? These questions tend to underestimate the importance of the human factor in the equation. Although today’s systems build on highly accurate 3D information, indication setting, training, technique and skill-sets of the entire team are still defining reliability of such systems. This lecture will discuss specific steps in the workflow that matter most and their clinical implications.
