Ex vivo study of prostate cancer localization using rolling mechanical imaging towards minimally invasive surgery.

Abstract

Rolling mechanical imaging (RMI) is a novel technique towards the detection and quantification of malignant tissue in locations that are inaccessible to palpation during robotic minimally invasive surgery (MIS); the approach is shown to achieve results of higher precision than is possible using the human hand. Using a passive robotic manipulator, a… (More)
