REFINE & RECOVER

ACCESS THE FULL POTENTIAL OF CBCT

Physicians agree: CBCT is essential to improve the feasibility, effectiveness, and safety of challenging interventional radiology procedures.1, 2

 

3D images can be used throughout an interventional procedure. However, involuntary respiratory motion artifacts often get in the way. This common barrier in CBCT imaging of the liver2 may decrease image quality as well as a physician’s ability to fully understand a tumor’s angioarchitecture and contrast uptakes.

 

3D - GET IT RIGHT

Physicians estimate that in up to 40%2 of CBCT acquisitions on non-sedated patients, images are discarded due to such artifacts, forcing them to choose between proceeding without 3D images or redoing the acquisition.

In up to 25%2 of those cases, physicians chose to attempt a second acquisition – at the expense of patients (who receive increased contrast media injection and radiation dose), and the clinical team (incurring potential time delays and diminished workflow efficiency).

Pioneering Solution for Interventional Suite

The first solution commercialized to compensate for artifacts induced by involuntary respiratory motion for interventional CBCT.3

Enabling Efficiency

With a fast post-reconstruction option, streamline procedure workflow with the opportunity to recover, 5 rather than discard, initial CBCT acquisitions.

No additional dose or contrast media

By potentially reducing the need to repeat CBCT acquisitions, Motion Freeze may help minimize radiation dose and contrast media injection. 

Facilitating Access to Advanced Applications

Involuntary respiratory motion artifacts can result in a failure to detect tumor feeding vessels, while using advanced solutions for automated vessel detection6 (such as FlightPlan for Liver, an ASSIST brand) may result in improved local tumor response.7  

 

By helping to salvage, rather than discard, initial CBCT images, Motion Freeze enables access to advanced solutions.

Physicians Praise Motion Freeze:

"The difference Motion Freeze provides is impressive – beautiful and clear. In the cases I examined, the Motion Freeze image has an incomparable quality and is usable, while the original acquisition was not."
 
Professor Thierry De Baere
Head of Interventional Imaging Department, Gustave Roussy Cancer Campus

“The results with Motion Freeze are quite impressive in terms of image quality improvement. We improved image quality, making CBCTs with little motion almost perfect, and improving CBCTs with a lot of motion so that they became clinically usable in many situations.”
