All an assistant does is hold the ARTIS device to the patient's body, the expert radiologist does the rest. ARTIS lets the remote operator move the robotic probe-holder through yaw, pitch and roll as well as instruct the holder to modify the ultrasound probe’s pressure on the patient’s body.
The system includes an integrated videconferencing option with remote-controllable webcam so the expert can watch the device being applied. The device’s mass was kept under 2.5 kg so it can be held comfortably for the duration of an exam.
