THE CUBE NAVIGATION SYSTEM

Navigate with Ease

An innovative navigation system for the precise alignment of needles and other thin instrument in imaged guided punctures. The Cube Navigation System uses easy to use single-use, sterile instrument guides, the Cubes, made intelligent by the power of our proprietary software- and image recognition algorithms.

The system consists of our Planning Software which is used to plan the intervention while our algorithm suggests the optimal entry points on the patented Cube accessories. 

This easy to use and adopt navigation system supports radiologists in image guided interventions using needles and thin instruments to increase accuracy of such interventions. Especially double obliques and complex trajectories become easier to perform and more efficient compared to interventions with and without navigation.

The Cube Navigation System currently works across CTs from all vendors, other imaging modalities will be added. It is set out to  revolutionize CT- and other image controlled interventions

THE CUBE NAVIGATION SYSTEM

Can be used with any CT imaging modality provider and can be used flexibly across your CT rooms

UNIVERSAL COMPATABILITY

The CNS doesn't require any setup or calibration - hence no downtime of the imaging equipment

CALIBRATION FREE

Using the CNS doesn't change the clinical workflow of the intervention, is easy to learn and integrate into your clinical routine

THE SYSTEM COMPONENTS

PLANNING SOFTWARE

The heart and brain of the CNS is the planning software. Based on a standard PACS viewer, it can be easily installed on a PC in the CT room and connected to the CT via its standard DICOM interface - compatible with every CT and PACS system. It features a virtual needle (yellow line in image) to plan the intervention. Based on the position of the virtual needle our proprietary algorithm calculates the best hole positions to use in the Cube's upper and lower template planes - instantly. Moreover, the software automatically corrects the needle path minimally to place the path of the virtual needle to the corners of the holes, to allow a stable and exact insertion of the puncture needle.

ACCESS CUBE

The Access Cube is designed to allow navigation for needles/ thin instruments up to 10G and hence can be used for a large range of needle-based interventions. Complex procedures like accesses for drainage tubes, ablations and biopsies, even with difficult trajectories, can be performed with high accuracy and planning reliability. 

Its patented mechanism to remove both grids of the Cube once the needle/thin instruments have been inserted allows for full access to the field of intervention and optimal control and usability.

PUNCTURE CUBE

Designed for pain therapy interventions, the Puncture Cube ensures effective pain treatment, by bringing the needle price sly to the target injection site. Supporting needle sizes between 18 - 22G, the Puncture Cube is an easy to use needle alignment tool in CT-guided punctures. Once the needle has been inserted securely, the Puncture Cube can be collapsed, to reach deep targets or in case some manual correction is wanted.

 

Using the Cube Navigation system together with the Puncture Cube, the active substance can be administered precisely, faster, with fewer control scans and with more consistent results.

1. PLACE

Place the Cube over target region of the intervention. Attach firmly using the adhesive pads on the feet

ablauf_weiss_lila-08.png
2. SCAN

Scan the target ar with a standard planning scan

ablauf_weiss_lila-09.png
3. DETECT

The software detects the cube automatically in the planning scan images

4. PLAN

Use the virtual needle in the software to target. The software calculates the best entry points on the Cube to reach the target

5. PERFORM

Move the needle through the holes on the upper and lower plate of the Cube highlighted by the software and perform the puncture
