Develop an MR-compatible needle placement manipulator for MR-guided prostate intervention.

Approach, Plan

We will perform a mock needle biopsy and brachytherapy using the new device at Brigham and Women's Hospital. 3D Slicer is used for planning, guidance and robot control. This is a continued work from 2009 Project Week.


  • We performed Mock therapy in 3T MRI Scanner at Brigham and Women's Hospital
  • Fix problem in sharing z-frame registration data among 3D Slicer and the robot
  • Fix registration error caused by changed z-frame geometry
  • All fix are uploaded to NA-MIC sand box repository (IGTLoadableModules/ProstateNavBWH). This will be merged to main repository (IGTLoadableModules/ProstateNav).
