Adaptive cancelling of physiological tremor for improved precision in microsurgery

C. N. Riviere; R. S. Rader; N. V. Thakor IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, 1998

Physiological hand tremor impedes microsurgery. We present both a novel adaptive algorithm for tremor estimation and a new technique for active real- time cancelling of physiological tremor. Tremor is modeled online using the weighted-frequency Fourier linear combiner (WFLC). This adaptive algorithm models tremor as a modulating sinusoid, and tracks its frequency, amplitude and phase. Piezoelectric actuators move the surgical instrument ...


Image guided operating robot: a clinical application in stereotactic neurosurgery

S. Lavallee; J. Troccaz; L. Gaborit; P. Cinquin; A. L. Benabid; D. Hoffmann Proceedings 1992 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation, 1992

Describes a system based on the combined use of medical imaging and robot positioning used in stereotactic neurosurgery. The types of interventions performed with the help of this system require a high precision (less than 1 millimeter) of positioning with respect to the patients brain with no direct visibility of the target; they are executed through a hole in the ...


Semiautomatic hysteroscopic video summarization

W. Gaviao; J. Scharcanski; J. S. C. Filho 16th Brazilian Symposium on Computer Graphics and Image Processing (SIBGRAPI 2003), 2003

Hysteroscopic videos have been used to measure the uterus appearance, and are of fundamental importance for gynecologists. Unfortunately, such videos contain lots of information, and only a reduced number of frames are actually useful for diagnosis purposes (e.g. analysis of the spatial distribution of the glandular openings). We propose a new method for hysteroscopic video summarization, with the objective of ...


Autonomous High Precision Positioning of Surgical Instruments in Robot-Assisted Minimally Invasive Surgery under Visual Guidance

Christoph Staub; Alois Knoll; Takayuki Osa; Robert Bauernschmitt 2010 Sixth International Conference on Autonomic and Autonomous Systems, 2010

Despite the fact that minimally invasive robotic surgery provides many advantages for patients, complex tasks are still time-consuming, error-prone and lead to quicker fatigue of the surgeon. Automating recurrent tasks could greatly reduce total surgery time for patients. While surgeons gain most of the information which is necessary to perform the operation from the visual feedback of cameras, there is ...


Assemblable pursestring suture instrument for laparoscopic surgery

Toshio Takayama; Toru Omata; Kazuyuki Kojima; Naofumi Tanaka 2008 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation, 2008

We have proposed a novel concept of assemblable instruments for laparoscopic surgery, that is, their parts can be disassembled to pass through trocars and can be reassembled inside the abdominal cavity to become large instruments. By applying this concept, this paper proposes an assemblable pursestring suture instrument (PSI). In gastrectomy, a purse string suture on the esophagus is made preparatory ...

  • 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.
