One of the most desired tools for interventional radiologists is the ability to perform an accurate real-time biopsy under CT/MRI. This task is however technically limited and difficult to perform. In addition to imaging device limitations and expensive costs of operation, Patient must not move during procedure because of registration mismatch between taken images and actual position (patient must not move).
We offer a real time navigation handle to which various interventional tools may be attached as desired. The system provides the exact position and inclination of the tool’s tip. The operating interventional radiologist is thus able to follow the procedure in real-time on a dedicated screen and plan ahead and inspect the procedure displayed on MRI/CT screen in a so-called augmented reality.
