Abstract: 3D Catheter Guidance Including Shape Sensing for Endovascular Navigation
- 50 Downloads
In endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) procedures fluoroscopy and conventional digital subtraction angiography are currently used to guide the medical instruments inside the patient. Drawbacks of these methods are X-ray exposure and the usage of contrast agents. Moreover, the fluoroscopy provides only a 2D view, which makes the guidance more difficult. For this reason, a catheter prototype including an optical fiber for shape sensing and three electromagnetic (EM) sensors, which provide the position and orientation information, was built to enable a 3D catheter guidance.
