Precise interstitial intervention is essential for many medical diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. But accurate insertion and placement of surgical needle in soft tissue is quite challenging. The understanding of the interaction between surgical needle and soft tissue is very important to develop new devices and systems to achieve better accuracy and to deliver quality treatment. In this paper we present the effects of velocity (linear, rotational, and oscillatory) modulation on needle… CONTINUE READING
