Automatic Puncture System Based on NIR Image and Ultrasonic Image
Department of Precision Instrument, Tsinghua University, Beijing, China
In view of modern clinical treatment and care, venipuncture has a very important position, but in order to train a medical staff with high level skill of puncture need to spend a lot of time, human and material resources. For this reason, in this paper, an automatic system that can achieve venipuncture is proposed, which can replace the medical staff and achieve the puncture process. The automatic venipuncture system, combined with NIR imaging and ultrasound imaging technology, the overall plane information is obtained by NIR image, depth information and fine positioning of the plane information is obtained by ultrasound image. By way of image processing, the NIR image is enhanced and segmented, getting the spatial location of the vein. And the most suitable blood vessel segments were selected by piecewise straight fitting. Then the location ultrasonic probe should be placed is determined. Then the ultrasound image with the blood vessel in the vicinity of the longitudinal centreline can be obtained. All the information of blood vessel have been obtained, then the machine can be driven to achieve venipuncture.
