Visual servoing of a medical ultrasound probe for needle insertion
2016 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA)
The main aim of the thesis is to contribute to a semi-autonomous active sensing system for needle tracking during percutaneous needle insertion. The objective is twofold: first to develop a system for acquiring ultrasound images, then to analyze these images in order to track the needle. The thesis is thus divided into two main lines of research: (1) investigate whether it is feasible to make a robotic system for acquiring ultrasound images using commercially available components; (2)doi:10.1109/icra.2016.7487520 dblp:conf/icra/MathiassenGE16 fatcat:zcybff4xa5frbpurfvt6hcwau4
