Minimally Invasive Procedure for Oncology

syngo Embolization Guidance enables advanced planning of the embolization of tumor-feeding blood vessels. Using this application, the vessel supplying the tumor can be marked, and the centerline of the vessel is automatically calculated, which is then superimposed on the live fluoroscopic image, thus simplifying catheter guidance during tumor embolization considerably.

With syngo InSpace 3D/3D Fusion, previously acquired CT, MR or PET/CT images can be fused with high-contrast 3D angiography images or with syngo DynaCT datasets in order to present all relevant diagnostic and interventional data at a glance. The fused dataset can be overlayed on live fluoroscopic images in the interventional lab and provides additional information on the tumor during the procedure (e.g., regarding its activity).

If a tumor is to be treated with an ablative procedure, it is especially important to position the needles that release the energy to the tumor precisely. syngo iGuide helps to plan and position the needle. The iGuide Cappa navigation system supports the placement of radiofrequency and biopsy needles via electromagnetic navigation without requiring any radiation.

Interventional procedures in oncology

Interventional oncological procedures can be divided into two categories: transcatheter therapies and ablative therapies.

Transcatheter therapies - During chemoembolization, small particles are injected in the vessels supplying the tumor via a catheter, until the vessel is occluded and the blood supply to the tumor has been stopped. Since the required nutrients and oxygen then remain absent, the tumor cells located in this area die. In addition, a chemotherapeutic substance is injected through the catheter and thus, placed directly on the tumor (local chemotherapy). This chemotherapeutic substance also causes the cancer cells to die off.

During selective internal radiotherapy, ti
