Medical robotics includes assistive devices used by the physician in order to make his/her diagnostic or therapeutic practice easier and more efficient. This chapter focuses on such systems. It introduces the general field of computer-assisted medical interventions, its aims, and its different components, and describes the place of robots in this context. The evolution in terms of general design and control paradigms in the development of medical robots are presented and issues specific to that… 
State-based Safety of Component-based Medical and Surgical Robot Systems
TLDR
This dissertation presents the concept, model and architecture to reformulate safety as a visible, reusable, and verifiable property, rather than an embedded, hard- to-reuse, and hard-to-test property that is tightly coupled with the system.
Issues in image-guided therapy [A Look at . . .]
TLDR
This series of articles attempts to point out some of the reasons why the effective dissemination of CAS-IGT systems in medical disciplines remains limited and shows that many opportunities in computer-assisted interventions are open in the near future.
The use of a 3D sensor (Kinect) for robot motion compensation : The applicability in relation to medical applications
The use of robotic systems for remote ultrasound diagnostics has emerged over the last years. This thesis looks into the possibility of integrating the Kinect sensor from Microsoft into a
Image guided robotic assistance for the diagnosis and treatment of tumor
TLDR
This thesis aims to investigate the integration of a Robot in a image guided system and the role of EndoCAS Navigator in this process.
ee par l'image. (From medical imaging to image-guided therapy.)
TLDR
This survey on medical imaging provides a look into three major components: the physical principles used for the image generation, how the image is involved in therapeutic procedures and in particular the new physical therapies, and the research perspectives.
A few critical issues in biomedical imaging and therapy
This introductory chapter does not pretend to give a full overview of the biomedical imaging and therapeutic resources but some ideas about the problems to face and the breakthroughs that are on the
3D segmentation and registration for minimal invasive prostate cancer therapy

TLDR
An ultrasound texture descriptors based on moments invariant to rotation and scaling are studied and some of these descriptors can be used to characterize regions sharing a similar speckle spatial distribution and it is found that some other descriptors were sensitive to the contours of these regions.
Random Regression Forests for Fully Automatic Multi-Organ Localization in CT Images. (Segmentation automatique et multi-organes d'images scanner: Utilisation de forêts d'arbres décisionnels (Random Regression Forests))
TLDR
This dissertation performs a thorough analysis of decision trees and of RRFs in the context of multi–organ localization in order to present and understand the inner workings of RRF, and proposes an automatic and consistent approach to find the forest leaf nodes that participate in the final localization prediction.
Computed Tomography in the Modern Slaughterhouse
TLDR
A tomographic reconstruction algorithm is proposed, enabling a substantial reduction of the subject-specific X-ray data needed to produce high quality images for accurate measurements, which is very beneficial for the abattoirs, as a reduction in acquired data translates directly into higher speed and a lower cost.
