Master Artificial Tactile Sensing Design for Biomedical Engineering ApplicationsFilled with high-quality photographs and illustrations, including some in color, this definitive guide details the design and manufacturing of artificial tactile systems and their applications in surgical procedures. Artificial Tactile Sensing in Biomedical Engineering explains the fundamentals of the human sense of touch and the latest techniques for artificially replicating it. The book describes the mechanistic principles of static and dynamic tactile sensors and discusses cutting-edge biomedical applications, including minimally invasive surgery, tumor detection, robotic surgery, and surgical simulations. Artificial Tactile Sensing in Biomedical Engineering covers: Capacitive, magnetic, inductive, conductive elastomeric, optical, and thermal sensorsStrain gauge and piezoelectric sensorsTactile sensing in surgery and palpationTactile image information through palpationTumor detection via artificial tactile sensingEstimating tumor parameters using the finite element method and an artificial neural networkDetermination of mechanical properties of biological tissuesTactile sensing in remote and robotic surgeryHaptics application in surgical simulation
