However, its scope is limited due mainly to the fact that this procedure does not currently provide tactile feedback without which the surgeon can neither feel nor palpate tissue. In this paper, we describe a new tactile display(More)
Surgeons performing robotic-assisted surgical tasks need to establish the density and constituency of hidden tissue structures using only surgical tools. This is possible by integrating a miniaturized sensor into the end-effectors of robotic surgical systems. In this present work, optical microsystems technology is utilized to develop a miniature(More)
