Within this project an anatomic roadmap will be realized that depicts prostate tumors in the context of delicate anatomies such as the lymphatics and nerves both prior to and during surgery. Using fluorescence-guidance and navigation-based approaches this roadmap can be used to improve the accuracy of (robot-assisted) prostate cancer surgery.
