ContextVision is set to launch its new product GOPView iRVUltra to provide radiologists with high resolution, real-time fluoroscopy (X-ray) images during minimally invasive interventional procedures (interventional fluoroscopy).
Interventional fluoroscopy compared to traditional surgery is much less traumatic to the patient as it requires only very small incisions to perform a surgical procedure by utilizing novel minimally invasive surgical tools.
The advantages are many, including less trauma, reduced risk of infection and much shorter recovery times during medical and surgical procedures.
Interventional fluoroscopy refers to the fact that the physician watches the placement and movement of the surgical tools inside the human body on a monitor in the operating room; images being captured and provided utilizing a fluoroscopy imaging system.
ContextVision CEO Anita Tollstadius said interventional radiologists always look to strike an ideal balance between the required image quality and the radiation dose for any given procedure.
"Our technology allows for the display of crisp, clearer images with high contrast ratios, while simultaneously suppressing noise," Tollstadius said.
