ActiViews, a developer of surgical navigation solutions, has treated first US patient with CT-Guide navigation system.
CT-Guide navigation is designed for use during interventional diagnostic and therapeutic procedures such as percutaneous biopsies, ablations, and marker placements in the lung and liver.
CT-Guide navigation system facilitates physicians to determine the location of the navigated instrument in relation to the 3D space of the CT images and the desired target.
Lahey Clinic vice chairman and interventional radiology director Sebastian Flacke said, "The premise of navigation systems is to provide accurate needle guidance for complex approaches with minimal disruption to our current workflow and the ActiViews system is designed specifically for this."
Lahey Clinic provides quality health care for primary care to cancer diagnosis and treatment to kidney and liver transplantation.
