Computer-Integrated Surgery (CIS) has been around for almost three decades, covering the entire field of interventional technologies, from medical image guidance and augmented reality applications to automated tissue ablation. Numerous CIS systems are already on the market, adding technology-supported quality to the standard of care. Furthermore, a real breakthrough in medical robotics is just around the corner, yet there is practically no safety regulatory framework developed for them. The first surgical robot standards are just now becoming effective after many years of development, setting the concept of autonomy, and the assessment of autonomous functions into the center system of evaluation. New, community-level consensus should be reached regarding the scaling of surgical robot autonomy to facilitate product qualification, regulatory procedures and future product development.
