Abstract
(EN)



An image guided robotic device is provided to perform a diagnostic or
therapeutic medical procedure. In one embodiment,
the robotic device includes an imaging machine, an actuator, and a controller
for controlling the actuator. The robotic
device may be configured to introduce a needle, a catheter, or a cannula into
an anatomical structure. The device and its
components may be sized for use as a portable device and/or operable using one
hand of the operator.
