VOXEL-MAN ENT is a unique simulator for surgery training in otorhinolaryngology. It combines the modules VOXEL-MAN Tempo for temporal bone drilling, VOXEL-MAN My Cases for creating individual training cases from CT or CBCT image series, and VOXEL-MAN Sinus for endoscopic sinus surgery. Based on virtual reality and robotics, it provides a look and feel close to the real intervention.
VOXEL-MAN ENT is ideally suited to gain a thorough understanding of the surgical anatomy and approaches in a safe environment. All procedures can be practiced as often as needed, and the costs for a surgical training lab can be significantly reduced. The training simulator features one- or two-handed operation of the instruments, predefined tasks, automatic skills assessment, visualization of learning curves, video capture, online updates, and much more. Its benefits are shown by various independent validation studies.
