Fluoro, Navigation Systems Merge for Better Vascular Guidance

December 7, 2009 – An agreement has been struck to integrate the Veran ig4 Navigation system and GE Healthcare’s Innova imaging systems to aid visualization during interventional procedures.

The partnership was announced last week in Chicago at RSNA 2009. The system is designed to aid interventional radiologists, but will likely find applications in cardiac and EP cath lab procedures.

Veran ig4 is a multimodality navigation system that utilizes electromagnetic localization and image fusion to display an interventional instrument, such as a biopsy needle, an aspiration needle, or an ablation needle, on a computer monitor that also displays a CT-based model of the target organ(s). GE’s Innova imaging systems acquire computerized tomography-like patient images, which under the terms of the collaboration agreement, can be exported to the Veran ig4 Navigation system in the same imaging suite, during the same interventional procedure.

The Innova CT image will be displayed along with a virtual needle over the anatomy to be used for navigation during the procedure. The resulting displayed image will provide navigation information to help physicians insert probes and other devices through the skin more quickly and with greater target accuracy.
