Last week, the MAGIC group met with Alan Goh and Hu Xiaoxiang from NDR Medical Technology. This Singapore-based startup has developed a robotic system with artificial intelligence and image processing for automated needle targeting (ANT). The device intends to aid surgeons and interventional radiologists by providing a precise needle trajectory with integration of medical images, allowing for increased accuracy of needle placement in an intended target and a shorter procedure time. This technology can be of use in a wide range of interventions, for example in targeted liver biopsy, ablation of liver tumors but also in percutaneous nephrolithotomy or placement of nephrostomy catheter. We successfully performed a preliminary experiment in the CT environment using a phantom of an abdomen with several targets. Based on this first experience, further improvements can be made in the appliance of ANT with CT-guidance. We hope to collaborate again with NDR medical technology in the near future.
