Abstract

This thesis describes the development of a visualization system to the first version of a novel surgical device which uses laser technology for neurosurgery. Specifically, this work combines two systems: The surgical robotic perception and neurosurgical-assisted systems. The surgical robotic perception system uses automatic registration technique to assist in automating tumor region tracking. The neurosurgical-assisted system is used to assist surgeons in controlling the surgical device for tumor resection. This work conducts a pilot study which will have future improvements for robotic automation and surgical application.
