MERLIN provides a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-guided, incisionless alternative to neurosurgery. An MRI-compatible (non-metal) robot steers a patient-specific curved needle into the body, which delivers localized heat to treat tissue without requiring open brain surgery. Specialized hardware, software, and disposable medical devices are integrated together to plan, monitor, and deliver therapy to the patient. Our minimally-invasive surgical robot reduces recovery time and collateral damage to healthy tissue while decreasing risks associated with infection, anesthesia, and cognitive impairment....
