A Different Side of CIVCO to Surface at RSNA, 2012

Coralville, Iowa (November 15, 2012) – (Virtual Press Office) -- CIVCO Medical Solutions announces plans to exhibit at RSNA's 98th annual event in Chicago, Nov. 25-30 and will be doing so in style with a new nostalgic booth theme.

As the use of ultrasound needle guidance becomes the standard of care for improved needle visualization, increased first-time success rates and increased patient safety, CIVCO invites you to visit booth #8309 to see why the use of needle guidance is not a game and to participate in on-site demonstrations for:

Needle Tracking – CIVCO's innovative navigation technology, including eTRAX Needle Tracking and VirtuTRAX Instrument Navigator, allows physicians to track the location of the needle tip or instrument in real-time as it progresses, ensuring safe and accurate access to difficult targets.

Making a debut is CIVCO's new Active Patient Tracker - omniTRAX. Visible under CT and ultrasound, the omniTRAX active patient tracker provides automatic registration of fused images for real-time, uninterrupted navigation. 

CT Guidance – RAD-GUIDE offers physicians a hand-free approach for accurately introducing needles under CT and Fluoroscopy by visualizing and adjusting planned punctures prior to needle entry, and reduces high-dose radiation exposure for increased patient and staff safety. 

Ultrasound Needle Guidance – CIVCO provides a variety of in-plane and out-of-plane needle guides for use in ultrasound-guided puncture procedures to improve accuracy, safety and efficiency for both novice and experienced practitioners.
