2015-0303-01

predominance

・Measuring a location and stiffness of a cancer as palpation
・Inserting a needle for treatment accurately into a cancer by compression using palpation probe to stabilize the cancer

background

・Increasing incidence rate of breast cancer in Japanese women
・Desiring minimally-invasive and accurate diagnostic and treatment techniques

summary

・Detection of a center position of cancer using palpation probe 
・Estimation of tissue stiffness using robot and medical image
・Method to reduce displacement of cancer during needle insertion by pre-loading the tissue 

application/development

・Supporting technique for breast cancer diagnosis and treatment
・Application to diagnosis and treatment of cancer in other parts of the body
