VesselNavigator

Intuitive 3D guidance

VesselNavigator allows reuse of 3D vascular anatomical information from existing CTA and MRA datasets as a 3D roadmap overlay on a live X-ray image. With its excellent visualization, VesselNavigator provides an intuitive and continuous 3D roadmap to guide you through vasculature during the entire procedure.

3D image fusion
3D image fusion in endovascular procedures

3D image fusion in endovascular procedures

Studies¹,² have shown the advantages of a 3D perspective for catheter and device guidance. With VesselNavigator, clinicians can easily segment 3D vessel structures from existing CT/MR datasets and fuse them with live X-ray for guidance. VesselNavigator visualizations show the 3D anatomical structure of vasculature.
3D roadmap based
Real-time navigation supports confident decision making

Real-time navigation supports confident decision making

Unlike 2D angiography images which can be limited by vessel superpositioning or foreshortening,¹ VesselNavigator provides three dimensional views of vasculature that allow you to easily define the right projection angle² for navigation and stent placement.
Adaptable overlay
Moves in sync to new positions

Moves in sync to new positions

During the procedure, VesselNavigator provides a real-time overlay that moves in sync with any projection, table, and system position. This may reduce the need to make additional contrast enhanced runs to create new roadmaps.
Choice of volume
Choice of volume rendering visualizations

Choice of volume rendering visualizations

Create overlays based on a variety of superb volume rendering visualization options. These can be customized according to user preferences.
Procedural efficiency

Potential to reduce procedure time

Philips CTA Image Fusion Guidance may lead to shorter procedure times. A study of 62 patients² showed an average reduction in procedure time from 6.3 to 5.2 hours during FEVAR/BEVAR procedures using Philips CTA image fusion guidance.
Anatomical ring

Anatomical ring markers

Ring markers can be added to the segmented image to indicate the ostia and landing zone and to define planning angles. These markers are visualized during the procedure for guidance.
