Improve speed and accuracy with Needle ASSIST.

Needle ASSIST1 solution provides real-time visualization of needle positions in the 3D space. It can help medical professionals improve their accuracy, reduce dose and support efficiency efforts when performing needle interventions, while having a limited impact on workflow. The potential reduction in dose and time ultimately helps increase the procedure volume in the angio-suite. This ultimately can result in maximizing ROI, free-up CT scan time for improved CT-ROI for diagnostic purposes.

Bone Intervention

Performing needle procedures in the interventional suite frees up your CT system and provides exceptional access to the patient. However, under fluoroscopic guidance, it may be challenging and time-consuming to find the right entry point and advance the needle while avoiding critical structures.

Assess

All at table side, reconstruct a needle in 3D with 2 fluoroscopic images with accuracy and to review the location of the reconstructed needle on the 3D anatomy.

Spine Intervention

Performing minimally invasive spine procedures in the hybrid OR provides excellent access to the patient as well as high-end imaging capabilities to help find the right entry point and advance devices while avoiding critical structures.

Guide

3D fusion guidance of your needle along the virtual trajectory. 3D bone rendering helps you visualize mis-registrations and correct them in both translation and rotation to achieve an accuracy better than 1mm on the needle trajectories.2
