NeoRad has invented SimpliCT, a laser based navigation solution for CT , PET CT guided interventions, such as ablations, nephrostomies, biopsies vertebroplasties and nerve blocks.
By marking the patient entry point and simply setting the SimpliCT laser with the angle of the preferred needle path, the intervention can be performed keeping the needle hub within the laser light.
SimpliCT is set with the angles obtained from the CT software, and will reqiure no additional software or workstations. Ceiling suspension / floor stand provides easy positioning of the device.
Recently SimpliCT has been put to use with advanced Cone Beam CT Interventional systems. For systems providing 3D needle path trajectory planning SimpliCT can be used to visualize the needle trajectory, replacing fluoroscopy in the C-arm Bulls Eye View (Entry point view) position.
The net effect of applying SimpliCT to your practice will be a reduced number of needle position confirmation scans, effectively reducing radiation dose both to the patient and the interventional radiologist.
Benefits of SimpliCT
Works with CT , PET / CT and Cone Beam CT
Easy installation with Mavig Portegra2 ceiling system
Reduced radiation dose to operator and patient
Facilitates procedures in z-axis (angulation plane or gantry tilt)
Fewer needle passes per patient
Improved patient comfort
For Cone Beam CT: The opportunity to use the laser for visualization of the needle angulation instead of fluoroscopy
