Automatic Guidance of a Surgical Instrument with Ultrasound Based Visual Servoing

Abstract

Visual servoing is a possible solution to assist the surgeon in performing tasks under ultrasound (US) imaging. To this aim, a system was developed that allows the surgeon to select a desired instrument location on a US image. Then a robot is programmed to automatically move the instrument towards the selected location. This approach requires robust… (More)
