In 2002 Esaote designed and introduced its own revolutionary cutting-edge system dedicated to fusion imaging modality, the Virtual Navigator, specially focused on Interventional Imaging where MRI/CT modalities are fused with real-time Ultrasound.

The Virtual Navigator advanced system allows the real-time visualization of enhanced Ultrasound Images thanks to the correlation with CT/MR gold-standard images. The combination of US with CT/MR reference modalities has as final result the data fusion of US and CT/MR images allowing to gain confidence in assessing the morphology in US images, especially in difficult-to-scan patients.

As a further step ahead Esaote introduces the capability of adding the fundamental information coming from PET imaging to Ultrasound modality, using CT scans coming from PET-CT examinations only for PET-Ultrasound fusion registration: read more about Virtual Navigator for Real-Time PET-CT/Ultrasound fusion imaging.

  • a fast, easy-to-use advanced tool that combines the advantages of real-time imaging with CT/MR/PET-CT high spatial and contrast resolution
  • able to overcome all physiological and physical limitations that usually restrict the effectiveness of ultrasound scanning
  • able to offer more confidence in assessing the morphology in US images
  • potential applications related not only to liver, but also extendable to all patients and internal organs with reduced ultrasound answer (e.g. prostate, thyroid, etc.)
  • spatial retrieval performed by the ultrasound probe thanks to the magnetic system identification
