Traxtal Highlights PercuNav System's Powerful Capabilities for Diagnostic Imaging
Date:11/25/2008

TORONTO, Nov. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Traxtal, Inc., the pioneer and world leader in image guided soft tissue navigation, will showcase the PercuNav(TM) system's capabilities for diagnostic imaging at the Radiological Society of North America's 94th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting.

The PercuNav system provides interventional radiologists and sonographers with the broadest image fusion capabilities available for soft tissue navigation. It also delivers powerful solutions for diagnostic imaging. Physicians can identify and mark areas of interest on CT or MR scans which can then be overlaid with live ultrasound for diagnostic scanning. This allows areas of interest to be quickly located and compared under both imaging modalities, while compensating for patient motion and respiration.

Neil Glossop, PhD, Traxtal President, said, "The PercuNav's integrated diagnostic image matching capabilities enable it to be used to rapidly cross match findings from diagnostic CT or MR with ultrasound or the reverse. This enables users to identify areas of interest on one modality and quickly correlate them to the location on another modality. This allows them to better characterize the areas of interest and potentially increase the diagnostic yield. This feature is particularly valuable for lesions that are difficult to spot on one modality and may be helpful in determining how to treat the patient."

Traxtal is in Booth 9539 in the North Building, Hall B of McCormick Place in Chicago for RSNA's annual meeting, which will be held from November 30 to December 5, 2008.

About the PercuNav System

The PercuNav system is the only computer assisted, image-guided diagnostic and interventional system cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for all imaging modalities, and is the only such system that features a broad range of flexible and rigid "tip-tracked" instruments. It is also the only commercially available soft tissue navigation system with tracked instrumentation that provides the option of navigation with multimodal image fusion with any single modality, such as CT or ultrasound imaging.

The PercuNav system consists of the Traxtal Tx(TM) mobile system cart, PercuNav software, and a wide range of instruments including flexible needles, biopsy devices and RFA introducers. Using minute electro-magnetic sensors embedded in the tips of these instruments, the software superimposes the precise, real-time location and orientation of the instruments on pre- operative and live images of the patient. The system also incorporates advanced techniques for compensating for patient motion and respiration. It acts like a GPS system for medical instruments, and is the only such product available that allows accurate tracking of flexible instrument tips inside a patient's anatomy.

Traxtal is committed to providing seamless compatibility with all major vendors' imaging systems.
