Q: What distinguishes the Paritic navigation system from other existing systems?
A: The Paritic technology presents strong and immediate 3D imaging functions. This  allows surgical planning and real-time navigation based on detailed 3D image models of patient.

 

Q: Does the system allow flexibility for utilizing the various types of needles and probes selected for the procedure?
A: Yes, the system is totally flexible for any needle mounting. The Paritic sensor can be easily mounted on the tail of any approved needle instrument ready immediately for use.


Q:How accurate is the navigation system?

A:The surgical needle’s position is tracked and is accurate to within 2 mm when there is no significant interference from other electrical equipment in the operating environment. Check with user manual for factors of interference from other electrical equipment.
 
Q: How is the patient’s respiration taken into consideration when focusing on system accuracy?
A: The Ultrasound system is used to monitor the real time anatomical structure of a patient and it is co-worked with the navigation system to present high accuracy during the procedure.
 
Q: Are the parts and fixtures of the navigation system reusable?  How should they be sterilized?

A: The plastic sensor parts can be sterilized by those disinfectants recommended in the user manual. They can not be gas sterilized or autoclaved.

 

Q: How detailed and specific is the Pari-path navigation system when planning a procedure involving a large lesion requiring multiple ablation needle insertions to cover the entire treatment area?
A: This problem underlines the importance of optimal insertion, advance and positioning of each needle path so the tip is able to treatment the specific shape and total lesion according to the different type of ablation needle. This is key to the procedural integrity and success and minimizing damage to healthy surrounding tissues. The  Pari-Path navigation system presents the simulated ablation region readily on the monitor in 3D so the operator can confidently observe and evaluate the procedure as it progresses to its defined completion.
