With the extraordinary advancement of
adiology and its outstanding contribution to medicine, there is
of having a robot that assists in interventional radiology. This advancement is
unique in medical technology because these robotic systems are
patible. MRIs have
these robots are created with
nonmagnetic and dielectric materials.
They also use air and light to function instead of electricity and
These robots could be a revolutionizing
t in medicine because it would operate
under remote control with the guidance of imaging. This would allow for more
The medical applications of this robot can be used for biopsies
current method for a biopsy is not
efficiently through ultrasound and
there is a risk of missing the tumor due to lack of guidance.
There are many possible medical
applications of a robotic system that is MRI compatible
and it could make int
erventional medicine more
precise and efficient.
