Traxtal’s New PercuNav2.0 Image-Guided System Designed for Diagnostic, Interventional Use

November 13, 2008 - Traxtal Inc. released its new PercuNav 2.0 software for the PercuNav system.

PercuNav 2.0 is a computer assisted, image-guided diagnostic and interventional system cleared by the FDA and features a broad range of flexible and rigid “tip-tracked” instruments.

It is a commercially available soft tissue navigation system with tracked instrumentation that provides the option of navigation with multimodal image fusion with any single modality, such as CT or ultrasound imaging.

The PercuNav system consists of the Traxtal Tx mobile system cart, PercuNav software, and a wide range of instruments including flexible needles, biopsy devices and RFA introducers. Using minute electro-magnetic sensors embedded in the tips of these instruments, the software superimposes the precise, real-time location and orientation of the instruments on pre-operative and live images of the patient. The system also incorporates advanced techniques for compensating for patient motion and respiration. It acts like a GPS system for medical instruments, and is the only such product available that allows accurate tracking of flexible instrument tips inside a patient's anatomy.

The PercuNav system is also designed to deliver powerful solutions for diagnostic imaging. Physicians can identify and mark areas of interest on CT or MR scans which can then be overlaid with live ultrasound for diagnostic scanning. This allows areas of interest to be quickly located and compared under both imaging modalities, while compensating for patient motion and respiration. It provides interventional radiologists and sonographers with the broadest image fusion capabilities available for soft tissue navigation.
