Background, Specific Aims, and Significance

A paragraph or so here. Give background of the problem. Explicitly state specific aims (numbered list is good) and explain why they are important

Deliverables

  • Minimum: (Expected by when?)
    1. Study design for surgery, data collection and analysis
    2. Questionnaire design for tremor, efficiency (time), and tissue damage
    3. Videotape of surgical experiments on animal vocal cord conducted by experts with and without robotic assistance
    4. Results and analysis of the questionnaire filled by experts
  • Expected: (Expected by date)
    1. Simple video analysis algorithm using Matlab/Python to quantify tremor in vocal cyst removal surgery videotape
    2. Videotape of surgical experiments on animal vocal cord conducted by med students with and without robotic assistance
    3. Results and analysis of the questionnaire filled by experts
    4. Results of tremor analysis in all videotapes using the algorithm
  • Maximum: (Expected by date)
    1. Virtual fixture algorithm
    2. Study design for conducting robotically-assisted surgery with virtual fixtures
    3. Videotape robotically-assisted surgical experiments with virtual fixtures on the phantom conducted by experts
    4. Comparison of questionnaire and tremor analysis results of non-assisted, robotically-assisted with no virtual fixtures, and robotically-assisted with virtual fixtures surgeries on the phantom
