Abstract:In breast screening lesions might be discovered which have to be checked for malignancy. To do so, a biopsy can be performed in which a needle is inserted into the breast to recover sample cells from the lesion for further research. This biopsy is usually performed under the guidance of an imaging modality. For MRI-guided biopsies, the patient has to move in between getting the scan and having the biopsy, due to the limited space inside the bore and the limitations induced by the strong magnetic field. Two options are discussed: a robotic system inside the MRI scanner and a robotic system outside the MRI scanner, the latter of which will be used in this assignment. Between making the MRI scan and getting the biopsy, the patient has to move, which might mean that the lesion moves due to for instance breathing or muscle relaxation. Real-time imaging can be used to update the location of the lesion to help the doctor target the lesion more accurately.
