Volume Navigation 3D Roadmap


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., has introduced Volume Navigation 3D roadmapping for the InfinixTM-i vascular X-ray product line, providing greater confidence during difficult interventional procedures.

Toshiba's real-time Volume Navigation 3D roadmap displays the deployment of coils during intervention on a cerebral aneurysm with exceptional clarity and precision. Volume Navigation links the movements of the system components with the fusion 3D and fluoroscopic display, so despite changes in even table and C-arm position, the 3D overlay is automatically aligned with the fluoroscopic image with high accuracy. In addition, Volume Navigation provides 2D and 3D roadmap display modes and allows physicians to fine-tune images with manual controls for device enhancement, further assisting physicians when making difficult decisions during advanced procedures. Volume Navigation is particularly helpful for procedures on intricate vascular regions, such as the brain, uterus and abdominals.
