description Video press release about the neuroArm, a remote computer assisted neurosurgery telerobotic device that can work inside an MRI. FTW! Except there hasn't been any official news since its launch last spring; it was supposed to go into clinical trials last summer (2007) but I don't know if any surgeries have been performed yet. EDIT - The first surgery was performed on May 12, 2008: an historic, successful event.
