XACT’s Big Plus: Robotic Needle Steering During Percutaneous Procedures

ARTICLE SUMMARY:

The first hands-free robot for percutaneous radiology procedures tackles the challenges of long trajectories, small lesions, and reflexive tissue motion by combining image-based planning and navigation with instrument insertion and steering capabilities.

Success depends on adequate visualization and targeting and can be hindered by difficult approaches and changes in location of the target due to respiratory or muscle movement. The need for improvement is increasingly urgent, as the rise of precision oncology requires the use of devices delivered accurately to targets deep in the body.
