BACKGROUND Needle insertion is an important procedure for the diagnosis and treatment of various diseases. A prototype curved multi-tube device (CMTD) and system for performing computerized correction of path errors during needle insertion is described. METHODS The CMTD provides two functional modes, the straight-needle mode and the curved-needle mode. This study describes the CMTD and path-error correction, using a prototype needle-insertion system in a trial with a simple water phantom… CONTINUE READING
