 “Instead of being a terminal

Director of the Institute of Clinical Radiology and Nuclear Medicine, University Medical Center Mannheim
precisely. In the future, a manipulator, guided and controlled by a specialist, will be able to complete this step in five min- utes. “This will allow the time needed to treat the patients to be reduced, while at the same time making the therapy significantly more effective,” says Schönberg. Twenty-four partners from industry and research have joined forces to
work on the highly promising project, with funding provided by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Along with the universities of Mannheim and Heidelberg, the partners also in- clude the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, the German Cancer Research Center, Carl Zeiss Meditec, KUKA robots, Maquet, and Siemens Healthineers. Consultants from Porsche Consulting are helping to introduce new process chains that will make fast diagnoses and treatment possible in one location.
“M2OLIE is turning specialists into team players. Our success is based on seamless cooperation between the individual areas of expertise under one roof,” Schönberg notes. To ensure that the pilot project leads to functioning centers being set up all over Germany, the consultants are working on an agile organization and a positioning strategy. Schönberg formulates the principle that will guide this work as follows: “The individual always comes first.”
A person’s intuition and the precision of technology: Professor Stefan Schönberg (left) wants to see doctors and robot-based assistants working even closer together in the future, for example when a biopsy needle needs to be positioned.
