  • Publication number: 20210393344
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for calibrating a medical instrument are discussed herein. For example, a first instrument can be configured to access an anatomical site via a first access path and a second instrument can be configured to access the anatomical site via a second access path. The second instrument can include an imaging component configured to provide image data representative of the anatomical site and the first instrument. A difference can be identified between a first coordinate frame associated with the first instrument and a second coordinate frame associated with the second instrument. A control frame of reference associated with the first instrument can be updated based at least in part on the difference.

  • Publication number: 20210330309
    Abstract: A method of managing fluid conditions in a patient involves advancing at least one medical instrument into a target organ of a patient, the at least one medical instrument comprising an irrigation channel and an aspiration channel, coupling the at least one medical instrument to an irrigation fluid source, providing irrigation from the irrigation fluid source into the target organ through the irrigation channel of the at least one medical instrument, determining an irrigation pressure limit based at least in part on one or more case-specific parameters, providing irrigation into the target organ through the irrigation channel, and limiting the irrigation based at least in part on the determined irrigation pressure limit.

  • Publication number: 20210196293
    Abstract: A robotic system includes a robotic manipulator configured to: manipulate a medical instrument having a basket; open the basket at a first opening speed and a second, faster opening speed; and close the basket at a first closing speed and a second, faster closing speed. The system includes an input device configured to receive one or more user interactions and initiate one or more actions by the robotic manipulator, including directly controlled movement and/or pre-programmed motions. Control circuitry of the robotic system is configured to: in response to receiving a first user interaction via the input device, trigger a first pre-programmed motion of the robotic manipulator to open the basket at the second, faster opening speed; and in response to receiving a second user interaction via the input device, trigger a second pre-programmed motion to close the basket at the second, faster closing speed.

  • Publication number: 20210196312
    Abstract: Techniques for aligning a medical instrument for percutaneous access to a location within the human anatomy can include determining an orientation of the medical instrument, determining a target location within the human anatomy, and determining a target trajectory for percutaneous access of the target location. Further, the techniques can include causing display of an interface that includes an instrument-alignment element indicative of an alignment of the orientation of the medical instrument to the target trajectory.

  • Publication number: 20210196399
    Abstract: Techniques for aligning a medical instrument for percutaneous access to a location within the human anatomy can include determining an orientation of the medical instrument, determining a target location within the human anatomy, and determining a plane that includes the target location. Further, the techniques can include determining a projected position of the medical instrument on the plane and generating interface data indicating a distance between the projected position and the target location on the plane.

  • Patent number: 10176681
    Abstract: An actuator is connected to an operating element of a manual user interface and outputs a haptic feedback signal to the user via the operating element. The operating element includes a sensor that detects a sensor signal generated by a manual input of the user as a reaction to the emitted feedback signal. The user's reaction time is determined. If the reaction time is shorter than a predetermined limit value, future haptic feedback signals are adjusted in such a way that their haptically perceptible intensity is reduced, and if the reaction time is greater than the predetermined limit value, future haptic feedback signals are changed in such a way that their haptically perceptible intensity is increased.
