— Remote surgery is one of the most desired applications in the context of recent advanced medical technologies. For a future expansion of remote surgery, it is important to use conventional network infrastructures such as Internet. However, using such conventional network infrastructures, we are confronting time-delay problems of data transmission. In this(More)
Introduction • System should be applicable in routine microsurgery. • System should be maneuverable in the deep & narrow surgical field. • Relatively wide range of motion at the depth should be equipped. • Secure procedure need to be performed. To remove a tumor Forceps Normal brain tissue In the neurosurgery, • Surgeon has to perform a precise(More)
A master-slave type remote ultrasound diagnostic system was developed. The controller has impedance control capability for the master and slave manipulators' positions. And it has a Continuous Path(CP) control capability for the slave manipula-tor's orientation. This paper presents the controller of the slave manipulator's orientation. The remote(More)

—In the present paper, we describe a method for constructing a remote ultrasound diagnostic system. Remote diagnosis can be realized using a communication network. We have developed a master–slave type remote medical system to diagnose shoulder diseases, such as dialysis-related amyloid arthropathy (DRAA), by ultrasonographic images. Proper positioning,(More)
