Enhanced ultrasound imaging
The USE (Ultrasound Enhancement) project primarily seeks to bring out a breakthrough in ultrasound-guided interventions during breast, liver, thyroid and lymph node-relat...
Cancer has caused about 13% of all human deaths worldwide (2007). However, survival ratio may be improved by early detection. Diagnosis of abnormal tissue is needed befor...
Haptic shared control for steering needles
We use shared control techniques by providing haptic feedback to steer flexible devices.
Ultrasound-guided flexible needle steering
Manual percutaneous insertion of rigid needles is commonly performed during minimally invasive surgery. These needles often deviate from their intended paths due to organ...
SRL develops MR-compatible robotic systems for interventions in the prostate.
Modeling needle-tissue interactions
Soft-tissue displacements during minimally invasive surgical procedures may cause target motion and subsequent misplacement of the surgical tool (or needle). Needle-tissu...
