  author={Guillaume Thomann and Maurice B{\'e}temps and Tanneguy Redarce},
Medical technology is changing rapidly with devices such as stereo-endoscopes, virtual reality, tele-presence surgery, and robotics for use in colonoscopy. The Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) is becoming one of the most important research area in the field of medical engineering. The colonoscope is one typical medical instrument that complies with the requirement of MIS. This paper describes the design of a new type of intelligent tip for the colonoscope. Because of the injuries caused by this… CONTINUE READING
