Systems and Methods for Inserting Steerable Arrays Into Anatomical Structures
Systems and Methods are provided for inserting a steerable array into an anatomical structure of the body. The system includes an insertion module for holding a proximal end of the steerable array and a force sensor configured to detect force on the steerable array and to produce force information. The system includes a position sensor configured to detect a position of the insertion module and to produce position information, the position information including a lateral position along an insertion axis and a first approach angle relative to a first reference axis. The system further includes a processor configured to receive the force information from the force sensor and the position information from the position sensor. The processor outputs performance information to a user. The performance information includes an indication of a first differential approach angle relative to an insertion path plan.
