I wonder how their decrease in procedure numbers will affect NVDQ. I am not a surgeon but I really do believe that this will become standard of care for many types of surgery. It is amazing to see how this technology works and how it identifies tumors versus normal tissue and necrotic tissue versus good tissue.
even if it's theoretically possible,and I'm not sure whether it is or not, it is unlikely to be common. It seems that the various specialties don't like sharing robots due to the scheduling conflicts. It's one thing when some new specialty is first experimenting with the technology but once they have decided to adopt it in earnest, they quickly want their own. If the cost of an additional robot is not stopping each specialty from wanting their own, I doubt the cost of a FireFly will even register.
