Imactis brings CT navigation system to the U.S.

By staff writers

November 7, 2019 -- French computer-assisted interventional radiology firm Imactis is bringing its CT-Navigation system to the U.S. for the first time.

University of Wisconsin Health, the academic medical center and health system of the University of Wisconsin, will be the recipient of the system. The navigation system features a dedicated instrumentation kit designed for percutaneous interventional radiology procedures performed under CT, such as tumor ablations, biopsies, musculoskeletal interventions, and other needle-based interventions.

The device allows clinicians to explore a patient's anatomy, plan the optimal needle trajectory to avoid damage to surrounding organs, and provide needle guidance and control for enhanced precision and execution.

CT-Navigation system has received both the CE Mark and 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. It is installed in 50 hospitals in Europe and has performed more than 6,000 interventions, according to Imactis.
