Siemens Healthcare has integrated the navigation technology MediGuide from St. Jude Medical into its Artis zee angiography systems. By means of magnetic targeting, MediGuide locates the catheter during cardiac interventions and projects its precise position in real-time on a previously acquired fluoroscopy image of the patient. This technology has great potential to save radiation dose during long procedures as the patient does not need to be scanned repeatedly with the angiography system in order to track the catheter.
