The calculation cost of the single-beam model is much less than that of the FEM since the beam consists of one-dimensional elements. However, ...

  • Simulation and skills assessment

    Being a competent surgeon involves many factors such as knowledge of anatomy, physiology, pathology operative theory decision-making and communicative skills to name but a few. Manual dexterity and the actual skill required to operate has recently come under increasing scrutiny, and there is growing pressure for surgeons to demonstrate that they can operate well, and maintain this high level of performance throughout their careers. In the changing climate of surgical training, we discuss the use of various techniques of surgical simulation for teaching technical skills outside the operating theatre, and consider the advantages and disadvantages of each. Current methods of assessment that are in place both in the research setting and in practice are also presented.

  • Liver Deformation Model for Two Point-Contacts Based on Beam of Structural Mechanics

    In the previous paper, we proposed a liver deformation model based on the beam of structural mechanics for medical training systems using virtual-reality techniques. In this beam model, a liver deformation is approximated by a single-beam deformation. The calculation cost of the single-beam model is much less than that of the FEM since the beam consists of one-dimensional elements. However, the single-beam model takes into account only one point-contact. In this paper, we propose a multi-beam model under the consideration of two point-contacts for laparoscopic training system by expending the single-beam model.

  • Assessing tumour vascularity with 3D contrast-enhanced ultrasound: A new semi-automated segmentation framework

    3D contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) is a powerful imaging technique for tumour vascularity assessment, which is critical for radio-frequency ablation (RFA) planning or for the assessment of response to antiangiogenic therapies. In this paper, we propose a novel semi-automated method for the quantification of tumour vascularity in 3D CEUS data. We apply a two-step framework combining an interactive segmentation of the tumour necrosis followed by an automatic detection of the vascularity based on implicit representations. Experimental results on 3D CEUS images of renal cell carcinomas (RCC) show that our method is promising in terms of speed and quality.

  • Development of configuration differing master slave combined forceps

    With small incision, patient is benefited in laparoscopic surgery. However, surgeon has to perform with less dexterity owing to the constraint by the incision. To enhance the operationally in this surgery, master slave forceps with three additional freedoms at the end of conventional forceps was developed. Master part and slave part are combined and different configuration was chosen for the master and slave. Developed forceps can be used like the conventional forceps and has three additional freedoms for better operationality. Description of developed forceps is shown in this paper.

  • Space Securing in Minimally Invasive Surgery -Examination of Operation System for Multi-DOF Manipulator

    This paper describes the development and experimental results of a master manipulator for the Workspace-creation manipulator for minimally invasive surgery. The master manipulator was developed for the purpose of maximizing the doctor's facility for performing operations. Therefore, the master manipulator needs to be easy to use for the doctor. This master manipulator which was developed has three degrees of freedom to control the Workspace- creation manipulator that has eleven degrees of freedom. And the authors studied new operation system with image of MRI.

  • Energy-based metrics for laparoscopic skills assessment

    The growing popularity of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) can be attributed to its advantages, which include reduced post-operative pain, a shorter hospital stay, and faster recovery. However, MIS requires extensive training for surgeons to become experts in their field of practice. Different assessment methods have been proposed for evaluating the performance of surgeons and residents on surgical simulators. Nonetheless, optimal objective performance measures are still lacking. In this study, three metrics for minimally invasive skills assessment are proposed based on energy expenditure: work, potential energy and kinetic energy. In order to evaluate these metrics, two laparoscopic tasks consisting of suturing and knot-tying are investigated, involving expert and novice subjects. This study shows that measures based on energy expenditure can be used for skills assessment: all three metrics can discriminate between experts and novices for the two tasks investigated here. These measures can also reflect the efficiency of subjects when performing MIS tasks. Further modification and investigation of these metrics can extend their use to different tasks and for discriminating between various levels of experience.

  • Motion planning for the intervention therapy robot system

    The minimally invasive surgery robot of five degrees of freedom has been developed for assisting surgeons to realize high quality and precise operation in Radio frequency ablation for patients with liver tumors. The minimally invasive surgery robot drives the ablator tool to track the tumor when the tumor moves in real time and precise orientate to the tumor. Through studying of the structure of the robot mechanism, the kinematics model of the framework is set up. By kinematics modeling and analysis, the quintic polynomial interpolation is adopted in trajectory planning for the robot locomotion control. The simulation results show that it can guarantee the continuous of joints position, velocity and acceleration, the robot movement smooth is essential to the doctor, patient and robot itself, which contribute to improve the safety of the people and stability of the robot.

  • Technology Developments for the Image-Guided Suite of the Future

    Minimally invasive procedures continue to increase in popularity because of the reduced trauma to the patient, shorter recovery times, and lower total costs. These procedures are often performed in an image-guided suite, where the physician uses x-ray imaging to look inside the body and manipulates surgical instruments through small openings. Since these procedures can be difficult, even for highly trained physicians, biomedical engineers need to develop appropriate technology to assist the physician in this environment. The goal of this concept paper is to present some relevant technology developments for the image-guided suite of the future, with a focus on the Interventional Radiology environment. The aim is to encourage open standards and open software as a means to leverage technical developments and create a "plug and play" environment where software and hardware components can be interchanged. These developments are aimed at providing better patient care with more consistent results and fewer medical errors.

  • Mechanical characterization of surface micromachined microneedle array

    This paper will report on the mechanical characterization of hollow metallic microneedles. The characterization will include the affects of design variations on the buckling and penetration force of these microneedles, and on the fluid flow characteristics. Needles of five different tip geometry and three different taper angles were designed. The taper angle varies between 15/spl deg/ and 30/spl deg/. The lengths of the needle shaft tested were 500 /spl mu/m, 1000 /spl mu/m and 1500 /spl mu/m respectively. Microneedles were fabricated using an extension of the work reported earlier. A simple horizontal loading set up consisting of a load cell and a micromanipulator was designed. A rigid orthogonal surface was used in order to study the buckling force, while a mechanically "skin-like" material was used to determine the penetration force. The buckling force was found to vary between 54 gF and 100 gF for needles with shaft lengths of 1500 and 500 /spl mu/m, respectively. The penetration force was found to be independent of shaft length and was approximately 8 gF. While the needle tips with 15/spl deg/ taper angle failed, the needles with 20/spl deg/ taper angle performed better but experienced a 50% tip failure rate. The flow rate of the microneedles was characterized over a range of 0 - 100 psi using distilled water and air as the fluid media.
