Clinical study CT-NAV I – Increased accuracy and fewer controls

IMACTIS CT-Navigation™ was successfully validated during a comparative, prospective, randomized clinical study on 120 patients at the Grenoble University Hospital on various procedures (drainage, biopsy, tumor ablation, infiltration, sympathicolysis).

The clinical study shows, that when compared to conventional procedures, the use of IMACTIS leads to:

  • Increased accuracy (gain in distance and angle accuracy higher than 50%)
  • Fewer controls are necessary to reach the target.
