[2021-02-01] Congratulations!Our paper entitled "A Mechanism-image Fusion Approach to Calibration of An Ultrasound-guided Dual-arm Robotic Brachytherapy System" has been published at IEEE/ASME Transactions on Mechatronics Journal.

This paper presents a mechanism-image fusion approach to calibration of a US-guided dual-arm robotic brachytherapy system. With this approach, no tracker or complex phantom is needed as the dual-arm robotic system can use one arm as a substitute for tracker and phantom to calibrate the other arm. More
