- Supervisory System for Robot Assisted Laser Phonomicrosurgery
Abstract— This paper presents the development of a system capable of generating safety alarms when unexpected or unforeseen situations are detected during larynx phonomicrosurgery. Such system establishes relations between the application of laser power and changes in laryngeal tissue characteristics and appearance. As core component, we propose a model able to map inputs generated by the surgeon when controlling the laser to an estimation of tissue temperature. Situations where this supervision is relevant have been identified..
