A Multimodal Navigation System for Interventional MRI


Medical imaging permits high precision minimally invasive interventions even in very delicate situations but leads to complex medical procedures not easily applied in a hospital setting. The LOCALITE Navigator is an interactive navigation system that comprises state-of-the art registration and visualization of multimodal medical images for minimally invasive interventions with an interventional magnetic resonance imaging (iMRI) system. The focus is on an intuitive and simple user interface that can be handled by the medical personnel themselves without relying on computer experts. The system has got a CE certificate in 2001 and is used by all GE SIGNA SP installations in Germany.
