Deep Venous Thrombosis (DVT) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality. Manually scanning with Ultrasound (US) probe brings heavy work load for the sonographers. This paper proposes a novel “Mirror robotic US scanning system. The system is composed of two-arm robot, linear US probes for master and slave side, Kinect sensor as a vision servo. On the master side, sonographers hold one robot arm and operate probe to inspect one leg. On the slave side, the robot follows the master probe on the… CONTINUE READING
