The Virtual Navigator Technology combines two different imaging modalities: real-time ultrasound scanning and static imaging (e.g. MR/CT) driving you inside the human body to reach the desired target.
Thanks to the Fusion Imaging and the Tracking System you will have a perfect correlation of Ultrasound and MR/CT images significantly increasing precision and accuracy of image-guided diagnosis and interventional procedures.
NaviSuite is the right, easy and fast solution to improve your practical work-flow by identifying the internal liver lesions and performing the follow-up in interventional imaging.
NaviSuite, moreover, allows you to merge MR/CT images with contrast-enhanced ultrasound real-time scanning, increasing your confidence through the use of the different modalities.
