Abstract

Image guided procedures such as percutaneous needle insertion or high intensity focused ultrasound, have become quite widespread. In images acquisition, ultrasound (US) is convenient to use in a conventional operating room, and inexpensive compared to CT and MRI. However, US requires to handle an US probe and do not have the base coordinate system. Therefore, intraoperative image position is unclear and cannot position to interested area. To address the issues, we have developed a robotic system based on US calibration and a probe scanning robot. In this study, to validate the implement system, positioning accuracy of an image plane was evaluated. Moreover, we developed an automated US guidance system with a conventional US probe. The system enables image plane positioning to visualize a therapeutic tool automatically. From the results, positioning accuracy of the image plane was 1.6 mm and 1.5 deg, maximally. In the phantom test, the error between the positions of the image plane and the mock needle was 2.5 mm and 0.9 deg. We have confirmed that the proposed system is greatly applicable for an intraoperative US guidance.
