RSNA: EDDA previews 3D image guidance tool for the OR

EDDA Technology previewed its IQQA-Guide as a work-in-progress at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago.

The IQQA-Guide seeks to bring interactive quantitative technology into the operating room by offering 3D image guidance for abdominal and thoracic biopsy, interventional procedures and surgery, according to the Princeton, N.J.-based company. IQQA-Guide utilizes a 3D map of anatomic representations extracted from multimodality image datasets. Through registration algorithms and electromagnetic tracking, it provides tracking and referencing to anatomic features of interest in 3D.
