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.

(FR)
L'invention concerne un dispositif robotique guidé par image destiné à effectuer une procédure médicale de diagnostic ou thérapeutique. Selon un mode de réalisation, le dispositif robotique comprend une machine d'imagerie, un actionneur, et une commande pour commander l'actionneur. Le dispositif robotique peut être configuré pour introduire une aiguille, un cathéter ou une canule dans une structure anatomique. Le dispositif et ses composants peuvent être dimensionnés pour une utilisation en tant que dispositif portable et/ou pour pouvoir être actionnés par l'opérateur d'une seule main.
