1010103Tactile Image InformationIn this chapter, we will focus on tactile image information through palpation as another application of tactile sensing in medicine and surgery. As an example, we will discuss the idea by first explaining the importance of its application on the breast, which is one of the most common tissues used in palpating diagnosis; we will then develop the theoretical and engineering aspects of this method for applications in breast tissue.
