In this study, a novel MRI guided prostate biopsy device was designed, produced and tested under MRI. In this scope, a MRI compatible, remote controlled, transrectal biopsy delivery system, a MRI compatible biopsy gun, a MRI compatible, biopsy needle which can be tracked under MRI, and a computer based control unit were designed and a prototype was produced. The robotic prostate biopsy device prototype was tested under MRI with in-vitro experiments using a commercially available prostate phantom.
