Dear Authors,

Robotic surgery is rapidly expanding its role in the management of a broad range of urologic diseases. Novel tools and technologies can aid in performing robotic urologic procedures and allow optimizing surgical outcomes. Preoperative and intraoperative imaging technologies - including 3D imaging, 3D printing, mixed and augmented reality, artificial intelligence hold the potential to disrupt a rapidly evolving field. Different aspects of robotic urologic surgery - from surgical planning to surgical navigation, from patient counseling to surgical training can benefit from the introduction and implementation of these new imaging tools. This special issue aims to provide a collection of high yield contributions from experts around the world on these exciting topics.

Best regards,
Riccardo Autorino
Guest Editor
