Toward a Robotized Inspection of the Olfactory Epithelium


In vivo inspection of the olfactory epithelium could lead to breakthroughs in neurosciences, but it can not be accessed today as it is located in a highly constrained area of the nasal cavity. To remedy this situation, a new concentric tube robot (CTR) geometry is proposed in this paper, designed to reach and perform an optical biopsy of the olfactory epithelium.
