Abstract

This paper reports a novel remotely actuated manipulator for transrectal prostate imaging and intervention, designed for use in a standard cylindrical, high-field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner. The device provides three-dimensional MRI guided needle placement with millimeter accuracy under physician control. Candidate procedures enabled by this device include MRI guided needle biopsy, fiducial marker placements, and therapy delivery. Its compact size allows for use in both standard cylindrical and open configuration MRI scanners. Preliminary in-vivo canine experiments are reported.
