An MR-Safe Endovascular Robotic Platform: Design, Control, and Ex-Vivo Evaluationhttps://www.embs.org/tbme/wp-content/uploads/sites/19/2021/09/TBME-01712-2020-Highlight-Image.gif170177IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering (TBME)IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering (TBME)//www.embs.org/tbme/wp-content/uploads/sites/19/2022/06/ieee-tbme-logo2x.png
Endovascular interventions in combination with fluoroscopic navigation are a standard of care for diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. Our work focuses on novel robotic systems for use in non-ionising MRI environments and enhanced manipulation of endovascular instrumentation. We present a novel robotic platform that comprises of a remotely operated MR compatible manipulator and an intuitive user interface. We evaluate the device performance in an expert user study with manual vs. robotic execution of endovascular tasks in ex-vivo phantoms. The promising study results may promote a paradigm shift towards fusion of robotic endovascular surgery with MRI-based navigation.
