Precise control of automated invasive surgical tools requires real-time identification of tissue types and their deformation. At the focus of this paper is the epidural puncture, for which it is shown that the tissue type and deformation can respectively be determined from laser-based spectroscopy and the change in force required to push the needle through the various tissues. Studies have shown that physiological variations from one patient to another are too great to allow absolute values to… CONTINUE READING
