No idea whether they are still 'emerging' or not but are used or at least being investigated in this field:

1. Robotics - where small scale surgery and laser incision is controlled by computer.
2. Remote view surgery - video/audio conferencing allows surgeons in a different continent to monitor and advise (and even control) what is happening during surgery.
3. Endoscopy.

Another is also the simple tie-up of all hospitals so that surgeons can get a full medicl picture of a patient regardless of where previous treatment may have been given.

There are check-off applications to prevent surgical mistakes.  You get red lights until the preceding check-offs/conditions are green-lighted.

I did research. I couldn't find anything relavant. I doubt if such kind of applications even exists. I was not sure, so asked for help.

Physicians, not surgeons here but might be useful background reading:

The surgical version is definately out there but if you can't find it you could always use another technology for surgeons as your third.

krutarth941,

Part of what you are learning how to do with this assignment is research itself.  You have enough information to begin but if you can't find a reference it means you need to stop searching on Google and start going to medical libraries for more targeted searches.
