Title

Biopsy Module – Localized cancers diagnosis as part of integrated CoBra robotic solution

Abstract

The MRI Safe biopsy system has been developed within the CoBra Project as part of the integrated robot serving the diagnosis of soft tissues for detection of localized tumors. The creation of the Biopsy system required selection of MR-compatible components like actuators, sensors as well as materials. Additionally, a lot of effort has been put into improvement of the biopsy quality through precision and correct speed appliance when firing the needle. The mechanical design has been optimized and adapted to fit into the MRI Scanner.
