Image-Guided Needle Placement

It has been demonstrated that robotic needle placement accuracy exceeds human hand-eye coordination, and treatment effectiveness is in generally highly correlated to accuracy.  However, despite the clear advantages, clinical implementation of needle placement robots is hindered by their complexity and cost. Our research is aimed at addressing these factors through improved mechanical and algorithmic design.
