Tissue discrimination based on vibratory sense in robot-assisted spine surgery


One of the major challenge in spine surgery is successfully cutting the desired bony structure while avoiding injury to the vital anatomy such as the spinal cord. This paper presents a vibration signal processing method to discriminate different types of tissue in robot-assisted spine surgery. During bone milling process, the tissue vibration signal… (More)
