Interventional cardiologists and neurosurgeons are exposed to X-ray radiations while performing surgery. A few tele-robotic systems currently in the market require tedious tele-control using an external input device. In this paper we propose to automate such interventional surgeries using a robotic system using image guided intervention. After image processing of x-ray fluoroscope image and applying new machine learning techniques based on Markov Decision process, our new robotic system is capable of reaching aortic arch, which is the first step in cardiac and neuro-interventional procedures. Further, we explain the algorithm and demonstrate the proposed system implementation on an endovascular simulator.
