Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Endoscopic surgical procedures performed with visualization via video transmission. When real-time video is combined interactively with prior CT scans or MRI images, this is called image-guided surgery (see SURGERY, COMPUTER-ASSISTED).

The course of learning of an individual or a group. It is a measure of performance plotted over time.

Endoscopic surgery of the pleural cavity performed with visualization via video transmission.

Process in which individuals take the initiative, in diagnosing their learning needs, formulating learning goals, identifying resources for learning, choosing and implementing learning strategies and evaluating learning outcomes (Knowles, 1975)
