We present a feasibility study of a system for MR-guided interventions including a passive manipulator to steer a needle from outside a closed bore scanner, demonstrated by a prostate biopsy in a canine. The system comprises of a shape sensing needle with fiber optic strain sensors such that the full 3D shape of the needle can be reconstructed and used to inform the physician about the tool trajectory in real-time. Real-time imaging, tracking and tool annotation is integrated with a web browser based guided user interface, which allows the physician visualization and scanner control intraoperatively from inside the MRI suite.
