Introduction & Objectives: In prostate cancer, radioguided surgery (RGS) is used for sentinel node biopsy (SNB) and holds potential for 99mTc-PSMA-guided surgery of lymph node metastases. Rigid laparoscopic gamma probes currently used for (robot-assisted) laparoscopic RGS procedures have limited manoeuvrability and control which restricts nodal identification. To address this a tethered laparoscopic gamma probe was developed (Lightpoint Medical Ltd). The usability and initial performance of this device were assessed in a 3D-printed pelvic phantom and in a porcine model.
