Paper Abstract

Image-guided procedures are performed frequently by radiologists to insert a catheter within a target vessel or lumen or to perform biopsy of a lesion. For instance, an interventional radiologist uses fluoroscopy during percutaneous biliary drainage procedure (a procedure during which a catheter is inserted through the skin to drain the bile from liver) to identify the location of the needle tip within liver parenchyma, hepatic blood vessel or bile duct. However, the identification of the target organ under fluoroscopy exposes the patient to x-ray irradiation, which may be significant if the time of procedure is prolonged. We have designed a fiber core needle system that may help the radiologist identify the location of the needle tip in real time without exposing the patient to x-ray. Our needle system transmits a low power modulated light into the tissue through a fiber cable embedded in the needle and detects the backscattered light using another fiber inside the needle. We were able to successfully distinguish the location of our prototype needle tip inside a cow liver phantom to identify if the needle tip was within liver parenchyma, liver vessels, or in the bile duct based on the recorded backscattered light.
