Ryosuke Tsumura is a postdoctoral fellow working with Medical FUSION lab led by Dr. Haichong (Kai) Zhang. Ryosuke’s research interests are developing interventional medical robotic platforms to enhance abilities of physician and improve clinical procedures. In his doctoral research, he developed a CT-guided needle insertion robotic system to conduct accurate placing extra-fine needles into lower-abdominal tumors by applying needle insertion controls and path plannings based on CT images. In addition to his work of needle insertion, Ryosuke has contributed to developing prenatal care robotic systems to support ultrasound imaging, which enables to find fetus parts autonomously based on machine learning approaches. Integrating various knowledge and technologies to solve clinical problems is his core motivation.
