About Soft Tissue Navigation Systems
Navigated abdominal surgery systems, used in soft tissue navigation, scan the surface of the liver using a laser range scanner to gather over 20,000 positioning points. These points are matched to a preoperative computed tomography scan and used to create a 3-D operative model of the organ, which allows surgeons to track the procedure around and through the tissue. Another soft tissue navigation technology for organ transplants and vascular bypasses uses fluorescent dyes and near-infrared spectroscopy to track blood flow within an organ or tissue.
