Abstract

This paper presents a radiological guidance method and robotic system designed to facilitate renal surgical procedures. Combines the guidance procedure normally employed by practicing surgeons with a simple and cost-effective needle injection device. The needle injector exhibits an extremely low radiological profile while providing actuated needle motion. The system can be easily utilized by urologic surgeons and can be readily adaptable to any operating room.
