Mechanics of Flexible Needles Robotically Steered through Soft Tissue
The tip asymmetry of a bevel-tip needle results in the needle naturally bending when it is inserted into soft tissue. This enables robotic needle steering, which can be used in me...

Evaluation of robotic needle steering in ex vivo tissue
Abstract— Insertion velocity, tip asymmetry, and shaft diameter may influence steerable needle insertion paths in soft tissue. In this paper we examine the effects of these vari...
