PhD @ UTwente: Medical Robotics

Minimally invasive surgery has revolutionized medicine by enabling interventions without large incisions, thereby significantly improving clinical outcomes. Such surgical techniques include insertions of needles, catheters, and endoscopes.

For effective medical diagnosis and treatment, the instrument must reach its intended target. In order to increase the targeting accuracy of the procedure and improve clinical outcomes, the goal of this research project is to develop methods for modeling the interaction of existing and novel medical instruments with soft tissues and with fluids. These models would be used to track and control the path of the medical instrument using a clinical imaging modality.
