Computed tomography (CT) guided percutaneous lung biopsies are conducted to retrieve samples of suspected cancerous tissue for diagnosis. This paper details the design and development of Robopsy™, an economical, patient-mounted, tele-robotic, radiolucent, needle guidance and insertion system which facilitates faster more accurate lesion targeting.
