    • Design of a novel MRI compatible manipulator for image guided prostate interventions 

      Krieger, A.; Susil, R. C.; Ménard, C.; Coleman, J. A.; Fichtinger, G.; Atalar, E.; Whitcomb, L. L. (IEEE, 2005-02)
      This paper reports a novel remotely actuated manipulator for access to prostate tissue under magnetic resonance imaging guidance (APT-MRI) device, designed for use in a standard high-field MRI scanner. The device provides ...
    • A preliminary analysis and model of prostate injection distributions 

      Chowning, S. L.; Susil, R. C.; Krieger, A.; Fichtinger, G.; Whitcomb, L. L.; Atalar, E. (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2006)
      PURPOSE. Understanding the internal dynamics of prostate injections, particularly injection pattern distribution is a key step to developing new therapies for prostate disease that may be best served with a direct injection ...
    • System for MR image-guided prostate interventions: Canine study 

      Susil, R. C.; Krieger, A.; Derbyshire, J. A.; Tanacs, A.; Whitcomb, L. L.; Fichtinger, G.; Atalar, E. (Radiological Society of North America, Inc.Radiological Society of North America, Inc., 2003)
      The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the use of a transrectal system that enables precise magnetic resonance (MR) image guidance and monitoring of prostate interventions. The system used a closed-bore 1.5-T MR ...
    • System for prostate brachytherapy and biopsy in a standard 1.5 T MRI scanner 

      Susil, R.C.; Camphausen, K.; Choyke, P.; McVeigh, E. R.; Gustafson, G. S.; Ning, H.; Miller, R. W.; Atalar, E.; Coleman, C. N.; Ménard, C. (John Wiley & Sons, 2004)
      A technique for transperineal high-dose-rate (HDR) prostate brachytherapy and needle biopsy in a standard 1.5 T MRI scanner is demonstrated. In each of eight procedures (in four patients with intermediate to high risk ...
    • Transrectal prostate biopsy and fiducial marker placement in a standard 1.5T magnetic resonance imaging scanner 

      Susil, R. C.; Menard, C.; Kriegel, A.; Coleman, J. A.; Camphausen, K.; Choyke, P.; Fichtinger, G.; Whitcomb, L. L.; Coleman, C. N.; Atalar, E. (Elsevier Inc., 2006-01)
      Purpose: We investigated the accuracy and feasibility of a system that provides transrectal needle access to the prostate concurrent with 1.5 Tesla MRI which previously has not been possible. Materials and Methods: In ...
