Risk-based path planning for a steerable flexible probe for neurosurgical intervention

Abstract

Minimally invasive surgery has become increasingly common in neurosurgical intervention. Recently, various types of flexible needles have been developed to reach deep targets while avoiding important anatomical regions. In a planning stage, it is required to compute a curvilinear trajectory from an entry point on the skull of the patient to the target… (More)
