Robotic Biopsy System Improves Efficiency

Featured Product from FAULHABER MICROMO


It started out with a simple question one day during Dr. Rajiv Gupta’s residency at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH): Why, with CT scanners routinely achieving submillimeter resolutions, was he still performing manual needle biopsies with only centimeters of accuracy? There had to be a better way. A team from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) agreed and built a robotic biopsy system with unprecedented efficiency and accuracy, powered by compact, high-torque brushless DC servo motors from MICROMO.  Read Case Study
