However, they have also reached clinical application. Methods: A literature review pertaining to commercial medical systems which incorporate autonomous and semi-autonomous features, as well as experimental work involving automation of various surgical procedures, is presented. Results are drawn from major databases, excluding papers not experimentally implemented on real robots. Results: Our search yielded several experimental and clinical applications, describing progress in autonomous surgical manoeuvres, ultrasound guidance, optical coherence tomography guidance, cochlear implantation, motion compensation, orthopaedic, neurological and radiosurgery robots. Conclusion: Autonomous and semi-autonomous systems are beginning to emerge in various interventions, automating important steps of the operation. These systems are expected to become standard modality and revolutionize the face of surgery.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/jspui/handle/10488/5131||ISSN:||1478-596X||DOI:||10.1002/rcs.408||Rights:||© John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.|
