    Abstract

    Ultrasound is widely applied to clinical purpose of not only diagnosis but also therapy. To enhance the accuracy for ultrasound theranostics, precise position control of therapeutic ultrasound source is necessary. Therefore, we propose a robotic system to control a position of an ultrasound therapeutic device based on the therapy plan on echogram. The system consists of ultrasound probe, a robot with the therapeutic device, an optical tracking sensor to integrate the coordinates and positioning software. The system enables the therapeutic device follows to an imaging probe based on a therapeutic plan. In this study, positioning and following control accuracies were evaluated. The results demonstrate the system has a potential for targeting the therapeutic device based on intra-operative planning.
