Abstract (Summary)

This thesis presents the design of a force sensor guided device to be used with syringes and needles for aspiration and biopsy. When it comes to complex procedures involving an insertion of a needle, such as biopsy, complications are on the rise because of poor needle placement. The effectiveness of a treatment and the success, precision, of a diagnosis is highly dependent on the accuracy of the needle insertion. This device is aimed to help accomplishing the accurate needle placement and increasing the performance of the surgeon in navigating the tool and tracking the target. The device was developed using 3D modeling and produced using additive manufacturing (3D printing techniques). A prototype has been prepared, including the circuit design and coding. Two different force sensors are used in the prototype. The device has been successfully tested, and capable of achieving the accuracy specifications, efficiency and effectiveness.
