Abstract

In this paper, to harness the possibility of real-time guidance of MRI, a robotic system has been developed to perform transrectal prostate biopsy inside a 1.5-T closed bore scanner. A specially developed MR pulse sequence is capable of tracking the needle location in real time while dynamically updating the scan planes to always include the needle and target.
