To watch use the button, available below!

Join us for an enlightening webinar designed to showcase the integration and potential benefits of the Histolog Scanner in the realm of robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP).

Part 1: Experience the Histolog Scanner in action through a pre-recorded video of the system used during RARP. Witness firsthand its speed, accuracy, and ease of use during a RARP procedure, highlighting its impact on surgical efficiency.

Part 2: We’re honored to have Prof. Mottrie and Prof. Shaw share their expertise and insights. They will present their ambitious work with the Histolog Scanner, discussing the new possibilities and perspectives it opens up in the field of RARP.

Part 3: The webinar will culminate in a live Q&A session, offering you the unique opportunity to engage directly with our experts. Bring your questions and curiosities about RARP and the Histolog Scanner for an interactive and informative discussion.

Given a large volume of questions, it was impossible to address all questions during the webinar Q&A. To remedy this, we’ve compiled this supplementary Q&A article. Here, our esteemed speakers, Prof. Greg Shaw, and Prof. Alexandre Mottrie are joined by Dr. Aiman Haider, a Consultant Histopathologist, who generously offer their insights in response to the audience’s questions.
