Philips 3D Heart Navigator Combines 3D CT images for Better Cath Lab Navigation

 

October 2, 2009

Philips Healthcare offers the 3D Heart Navigator interventional tool, which combines 3D CT images of a patients’ cardiac anatomy captured before a procedure into a single image with an overlay of the live X-ray fluoroscopy information.

The company said the technology will likely play a big role in navigating fluoroscopic images for the implantation of transcatheter valves. The solution was unveiled at TCT 2009 and is scheduled for commercial release in 2010.
