X-Ray fluoroscopy and fluoroscopy overlay for minimally invasive surgeries, including endovascular procedures, expose both you and your patients to dangerous levels of ionizing radiation that increase the risk for acute toxicity and with repeated exposure, cancer.
Not only can exposure dose vary greatly depending on the type of procedure and other factors such as the patient’s size, anatomic complexity, the operator’s technique and the equipment, but studies show patients may be exposed to 20 times the effective dose of radiation while physicians can be exposed to as much as 200 times the amount.
Although the side effects of contrast dye are typically mild, certain populations can be at risk for contrast-induced nephropathy, nephrogenic systemic fibrosis and anaphylactic shock.
IOPS, our revolutionary technology platform, uses safe, low-level electromagnetic tracking which eliminates the potential for risks and side effects.
When it comes to navigating complex vasculature of a patient’s unique anatomy, you no longer have to be limited by outdated technology. Real-time, 360-degree visualization allows you to see the vasculature in ways you never thought possible. With improved navigation and crystal clear views, the risk for errors and costly follow-up procedures is a thing of the past.
