Robotically steered flexible needles navigate in tissue

Robotically steered flexible needles navigate in tissue

August 27,2015 | Robotically steering flexible needles can reach their intended target in tissue with sub-millimetre level accuracy. This has been demonstrated by the doctoral research of Momen Abayazid, who is affiliated with the research institute MIRA of the University of Twente. An major advantage of steering flexible needles is that one can avoid obstacles […]
