A robotics system for stereotactic neurosurgery and its clinical application

Proceedings. 1998 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (Cat. No.98CH36146), 1998

This paper introduces the research on robot assisted, minimally invasive neurosurgery. The prototype system developed is composed of a preoperative image-guided planning, the minimal-invasive and noninvasive calibration between the virtual and actual environments, and a surgical robot for location and remote-controlled procedures based on the preoperative strategy. Finally, results of the clinical application are given to show that the robotic ...


Technology Developments for the Image-Guided Suite of the Future

2007 Joint Workshop on High Confidence Medical Devices, Software, and Systems and Medical Device Plug-and-Play Interoperability (HCMDSS-MDPnP 2007), 2007

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 ...


AcuBot: a robot for radiological interventions

IEEE Transactions on Robotics and Automation, 2003

We report the development of a robot for radiological percutaneous interventions using uniplanar fluoroscopy, biplanar fluoroscopy, or computed tomography (CT) for needle biopsy, radio frequency ablation, cryotherapy, and other needle procedures. AcuBot is a compact six-degree-of-freedom robot for manipulating a needle or other slender surgical instrument in the confined space of the imager without inducing image artifacts. Its distinctive characteristic ...


Positioning Accuracy of Neurosurgeons

2007 29th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 2007

Accuracy in manual manipulation in a simulated craniotomy environment has been studied. Eighty-eight neurosurgeons with varying amounts of surgical experience were tested in two tasks: attempting to hold an instrument still, and trying to trace a line. Results for RMS and maximum linear and angular motion were measured in the static task. RMS and maximum error were measured in the ...

  • A robotics system for stereotactic neurosurgery and its clinical application

    This paper introduces the research on robot assisted, minimally invasive neurosurgery. The prototype system developed is composed of a preoperative image-guided planning, the minimal-invasive and noninvasive calibration between the virtual and actual environments, and a surgical robot for location and remote-controlled procedures based on the preoperative strategy.

  • 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.

  • AcuBot: a robot for radiological interventions

    We report the development of a robot for radiological percutaneous interventions using uniplanar fluoroscopy, biplanar fluoroscopy, or computed tomography (CT) for needle biopsy, radio frequency ablation, cryotherapy, and other needle procedures. AcuBot is a compact six-degree-of-freedom robot for manipulating a needle or other slender surgical instrument in the confined space of the imager without inducing image artifacts. Its distinctive characteristic is its decoupled motion capability correlated to the positioning, orientation, and instrument insertion steps of the percutaneous intervention. This approach allows each step of the intervention to be performed using a separate mechanism of the robot. One major advantage of this kinematic approach is patient safety. The first feasibility experiment performed with the robot, a cadaver study of perispinal blocks under biplanar fluoroscopy, is presented. The main expected application of this system is to CT-based procedures. AcuBot has received Food and Drug Administration clearance (IDE G010331/S1), and a clinical trial of using the robot for perispinal nerve and facet blocks is presently underway at Georgetown University, Washington, DC.

  • Positioning Accuracy of Neurosurgeons

    Accuracy in manual manipulation in a simulated craniotomy environment has been studied. Eighty-eight neurosurgeons with varying amounts of surgical experience were tested in two tasks: attempting to hold an instrument still, and trying to trace a line. Results for RMS and maximum linear and angular motion were measured in the static task. RMS and maximum error were measured in the dynamic task. Spectral analysis was also performed for both tasks. The median RMS amplitude of the position vector in three dimensions was 526 mum in the stationary task, and the median RMS amplitude of the error vector was 289 mum in the tracing task.

  • Wireless Surgical Tools for Mechanical Measurements during Scoliosis Surgery

    Comprehensively understanding the mechanics of loads applied by orthopaedic surgeons and distributed to the spine during scoliosis corrective surgery may improve surgical outcome and patient safety. Instruments to measure forces applied by orthopaedic surgeons have been reported. This paper presents instrumented hooks and screws with a real time wireless data acquisition system to measure loads and moments distributed to the spine during scoliosis surgery. From laboratory tests, the maximum error of posterior/anterior forces and moments were 2-3% of the maximum loads during surgery. This study improves the understanding of mechanics during surgical correction

  • Free flap monitoring by dual wavelength spectrophotometry

    A need exists for a monitor for use in plastic surgery. We have developed an inexpensive device which uses a modified pulse oximeter probe to measure changes in concentration of haemoglobin species in free flaps during surgery. Reperfusions of free flaps have been monitored and initial results show a marked difference in response between healthy and failing flaps.

  • Virtual Reality Applications in Neurosurgery

    Virtual reality technology has great potential to benefit the practice of neurosurgery. Standard 2-dimensional radiologic data of the brain can be transformed into a 3-dimensional virtual object which closely resembles the actual brain, and allows the neurosurgeon to interact it in a realistic manner. By incorporating haptics technology, simulated tactile sensations can also be conveyed to the user. This paper will describe the scope and applications of virtual reality in neurosurgery, especially in the areas of education, training, pre-operative planning and rehearsals

  • Infrared imaging in minimally invasive surgery

    Minimally invasive surgery is now in widespread use in both adult and pediatric patients. Lack of tactile feedback, limited range of motion of the surgical instruments and inability to discern anatomic features and pathological conditions remain major drawbacks to this modality. Infrared technology can assist the surgeon by delineating structures and improving visualization on a real-time basis.
