Fascinating news, can't wait to see how useful this technology can become. A lot of problems on the brain could be solved if this prove to be safe.

It may seems strange to focus on DWS and gliomas (because there are other problems that are much more frequent and in urgent need for better surgical solutions), but it makes a lot of sense to focus on things that require relatively simple procedures once access is achieved, puncturing a cyst or injecting a small dose into a tumor are things that can be done with relative safety even by robots with limited functions.

Hopefully in the near future other more complex treatment will also become possible.

I do not consent

Does this mean you are a patient of inoperable Dandy-Walker Syndrome or malignant gliomas? else why would you need to consent to this possibly life-saving procedure?

Where is Raquel Welch when you need her! ;)

A truly fascinating advance, even I can see this tech could be used in many more areas and treatments.

Look forward to seeing how this developers in the future.
