DEVELOPMENT OF AN AUGMENTED REALITY APPROACH FOR CLOSED INTRACARDIAC INTERVENTIONS

Terry M. Peters; Cristian A. Linte; Andrew D. Wiles; Nick Hill; John Moore; Chris Wedlake; Doug Jones; Dan Bainbridge; Gerard Guiraudon 2007 4th IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging: From Nano to Macro, 2007

Many intracardiac interventions are currently performed after the patient has been placed on cardiopulmonary bypass, and the heart has been arrested. We have developed a new method for operating on multiple targets inside the beating heart. In this procedure, the targets are accessed using a virtual reality (VR)-assisted image-guidance platform that combines real-time ultrasound (US) with a virtual model of ...


Laparoscopic skill measurement with COP to realize a HAM Scrub Nurse Robot system

Teruyoshi Sadahiro; Mitsumasa Hamazaki; Fujio Miyawaki; Kitaro Yoshimitsu; Ken Masamune 2007 IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man and Cybernetics, 2007

The main purpose of this study is to develop a way in order to measure laparoscopic skills using center of pressure (COP). This study is intended to contribute for the development of a scrub nurse robot (SNR) system. SNR is an alternative of a human scrub nurse which hands surgical instruments to surgeons and receives them back. One of the ...


Microbioengineering: microbe capture and detection

L. Powers; C. Lloyd; H. -Y. Mason; M. Dice; R. Tingy; C. Estes; A. Duncan; B. Wade; W. Jr. Ellis 2001 Conference Proceedings of the 23rd Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 2001

Summary form only given. Recent deaths from outbreaks of microbial contamination particularly in foods, but also in water and air, the recent threats of biological warfare/terrorism, and the re-emergence of such diseases as tuberculosis have emphasized the importance of quick and accurate assessments of microbial contamination. In addition, microbial contamination of sterile surfaces, such as those of medical and surgical ...


Image registration using robust correlation

Jeongtae Kim; J. A. Fessler Proceedings IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging, 2002

We have investigated an intensity-based image registration technique using a robust correlation coefficient as a similarity measure. The proposed method has an advantage over the ordinary correlation coefficient since it reduces the effect of "outlier" image intensity values. For the application of image registration to radiotherapy or image-guided surgery, there may be outlier samples due to the presence of the ...


Cartesian control issues for minimally invasive robot surgery

T. Ortmaier; G. Hirzinger Proceedings. 2000 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS 2000) (Cat. No.00CH37113), 2000

Telepresence in minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is a promising application for robotics because the robot enhances the manipulation and sensation capabilities of the surgeon. Many of these surgical robots are equipped with passive joints that guarantee that no forces are exerted to the entry point. Due to these passive joints, which are dependent on the entry point's position, new algorithms ...

  • RobotAssisted Microsurgery Development at JPL

    Microsurgeons use a microscope with 20 to 30 times magnification to help them visualize the microscopic field they work with. However, they still use their hands to hold instruments that manipulate tissue with feature sizes from fifty to a few hundred microns. A microsurgical manipulator that can scale down the surgeon's hand motions to the microscopic field would allow the average surgeon to perform at the level of the best surgeons and allow the most skillful surgeons to perform at unprecedented levels of dexterity. Development of practical systems for assisting microsurgeons in this way is a growing field of research. Microtelerobotic workstations systems that have been developed for biomedical applications. The work reported here is the result of collaboration between researchers at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and Steve Charles, a vitreo-retinal surgeon. The Robot-Assisted Microsurgery (RAMS) telerobotic workstation developed at JPL is a prototype of a system that will be completely under the manual control of a surgeon. It is unique in its combination of compact size, light weight, and high precision. The system, has a slave robot that holds surgical instruments. The surgeon commands motions for the instrument by moving the handle on a master device in the desired trajectories. The trajectories are measured, filtered, and scaled down then used to drive the slave robot. We present the details of this telerobotic system by first giving an overview of the subsystems and their interactions and then presenting details. The chapter concludes with a description of a recent demonstration of a simulated microsurgery procedure performed at JPL.
