  • Patent number: 11007023
    Abstract: A system and method of registration between devices includes a tracking system and a controller. The system is configured to couple to a first device and a second arm separate from the first device. The first device has a first arm configured to couple to a manipulatable device. The second arm is configured to couple to an imaging device. The controller is configured to determine, based on tracking data from the tracking system, a first pose of the first arm and a second pose of the second arm; send a movement command to the second arm that directs the second arm to move into a third pose while maintaining a safety margin between the first and second arms. In the third pose the imaging device can capture an image of at least a portion of the manipulatable device. The movement command is based on the first and second poses.

  • Patent number: 10376335
    Abstract: In a method and an apparatus to provide updated images during a robotically-implemented surgical procedure, 3D data is obtained of a volume of a patient, which includes anatomy involved in the procedure. The anatomy is segmented from a reconstructed image of the volume. During the procedure, the surgeon applies forces on the anatomy, causing a geometric change of the anatomy. Force sensors in the surgical robot detect these forces, which are supplied to a processor that controls display of the segmented anatomy at a display screen. From the applied forces and the physical properties of the anatomy, the processor calculates the geometric change of the anatomy that has occurred and modifies the appearance and/or position of the displayed segmented anatomy on the display screen in real time during the procedure, so as to visualize the geometric change.

  • Publication number: 20190026133
    Abstract: A system and method of aggregating logs for replay includes a processor configured to execute a replay service. The replay service is configured to access a plurality of logs, aggregate the plurality of logs to create a composite log, extract a first log entry from the composite log, recreate a service request based on information associated with the first log entry, and send the service request to a corresponding service to recreate an event associated with the first log entry. In some embodiments, to aggregate the plurality of logs to create the composite log, the replay service is configured to aggregate a first entry from a first log of the plurality of logs with a corresponding related second entry from a second log of the plurality of logs to create a composite entry for the composite log.

  • Patent number: 10064682
    Abstract: A system and method for movement control includes a controller coupled to a computer-assisted surgical device having a first movable arm coupled to a manipulatable device having a working end and a second movable arm coupled to an image capturing device. The controller is configured to receive first configurations for the first movable arm; receive second configurations for the second movable arm; receive a plurality of images of the working end from the image capturing device; determine a position and an orientation of the working end; determine a first movable arm position and trajectory for the first movable arm; determine a second movable arm position and trajectory for the second movable arm; determine whether motion of the movable arms will result in an undesirable relationship between the movable arms; and send a movement command to the first or second movable arm to avoid the undesirable relationship.
