Synopsis

The uniqueness of the Percunav system lies in its 3D ultrasound image fusion and navigation capabilities, which enable doctors to combine the advantages of different imaging techniques including CT, MR, PET, and ultrasound. This allows for more precise and accurate procedures, while reducing radiation exposure. However, the utilization of this technology requires understanding and overcoming the learning curve. Additionally, Dr. Ozen explores the various applications of this technology including biopsies, drain placements and other challenging interventions.
