Volume Navigation 3-D Roadmap Aids More Accurate Interventions

March 22, 2011 – During complex interventional procedures, it is challenging to accurately navigate and interpret the vascular anatomy for precise device deployment. To aid physicians during such interventions, Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc. introduced Volume Navigation 3-D roadmapping for the Infinix-i vascular X-ray product line.

Volume Navigation will be showcased at Toshiba’s booth at this year’s Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) annual meeting in Chicago, March 26–31, in booth 758.

The real-time Volume Navigation 3-D roadmap displays the deployment of embolization coils during intervention on a cerebral aneurysm with clarity. It also links the movements of the system components with the fusion 3-D and fluoroscopic display, so despite changes in even table and C-arm position, the 3-D overlay is automatically aligned with the fluoroscopic image. In addition, Volume Navigation provides 2-D and 3-D roadmap display modes and allows physicians to fine-tune images with manual controls for device enhancement. Volume Navigation is designed to be particularly helpful for procedures on intricate vascular regions, such as the brain, uterus and abdominals.

The system offers two display modes and three manual adjustments to optimize the image at any stage of the procedure. These features provide the tools physicians require to navigate complex anatomy with greater precision and control. Some of the tools include simultaneous 2-D roadmap and 3-D roadmap displays on separate monitors, enhanced visualization of wires and other interventional devices, and better visualization of complex arteriovenous malformation (AVM) shunt vessels.

Volume Navigation is 510(k) cleared and available as an option on all Toshiba Infinix-i vascular X-ray systems.
