Robots ultrasound (RUS) can be defined as the combination of ultrasound imaging with a robotic system in medical interventions. With their potential for high precision, dexterity, and repeatability, robots are often uniquely suited for ultrasound integration. Although the field is relatively young, it has already generated a multitude of robotic systems for application in dozens of medical procedures. This paper reviews the robotic ultrasound systems that have been developed over the past two decades and describes their potential impact on modern medicine. The RUS projects reviewed include extracorporeal devices, needle guidance systems, and intraoperative systems.
