Product The SIU (System Interface Unit) is a component in the Tool Connection Unit of the PercuNav system. It is part of the position sensor system used to calculate the position of the instrument. The Tool Connection Unit is a component of the PercuNav Image Guided Intervention System. It is used to connect tracked instruments to the PercuNav system unit. It has a System Part Number: 989605392501, 989605396032, 989605395201. Tool Connection Unit Part Number: 453561426002, 453561443201 The model number: Stand-alone PercuNav: TX2-120, PercuNav integrated on iV22: TXV2. PercuNav is a stereotaxic accessory for Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance, (MR), Ultrasound (US), Positron Emission Tomography (PET), Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT), Fluoroscopy, Endoscopy and other imaging systems. It displays the simulated image of a tracked insertion tool such as a biopsy needle, guidewire or probe on a computer monitor screen that shows images of the target organs and the current and the projected future path of the interventional instrument taking into account movements of the patient. This is intended for treatment planning and intra-operative guidance for surgical procedures. The device also supports an image-free mode in which the proximity of the interventional device is displayed relative to another device. The system can support a diagnostic mode in which fused images are used to help locate and evaluate targets visible on one modality on a second modality. The device is intended to be used in clinical interventions and for anatomical structures where imaging is currently used for visualizing such procedures. The device is also intended for use in clinical interventions to determine the proximity of one device relative to another.
