ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||Radio frequecy ablation is the most widely used local ablative therapy for both primary and metastatic liver tumours. However, it has limited application in the treatment of large tumours(tumours >3cm) and multi centric tumours. In recent years, many strategies have been developedto extend the application of radiofrequency ablation to large tumours. A promising approach is to take advantage of the rapid advancement in imaging and robotic technologies to construct anintegrated surgical navigation and medical robotic system. This paper presents a review of existingsurgical navigation methods and medical robots. We also introduce our current developed model -Transcutaneous Robot-assisted Ablation-device Insertion Navigation System (TRAINS). The clinicalviability of this prototyped integrated navigation and robotic system for large and multicentric tumorsis demonstrated using animal experiments.||Source Title:||Annals of the Academy of Medicine Singapore||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/68187||ISSN:||03044602|
