  • Publication number: 20180317743
    Abstract: A method for identifying material to be removed from a patient may use an imaging device, a display, a control unit, and an insertion device. The method may include obtaining a first set of image data from the imaging device, sending the first set of image data to the control unit from the imaging device, and analyzing the first set of image data based on at least one of a darkness, a contrast, or a saturation. The method may include generating a coded image identifying the material to be removed from the patient to be displayed on the display. The method may further include displaying the coded image on a first screen of the display, and indicating the material to be removed with the insertion device based on the displayed coded image.

  • Publication number: 20180139392
    Abstract: Guidance systems and associated methods are disclosed. One method comprises: receiving macroscan data prior to an operation; defining a body information model from the macroscan data; positioning a navigation component in the body during the operation; generating microscan data with the navigation component; correlating a location in the macroscan data with a location in the microscan data in the body information model; and/or modifying the body information model by combining an image in the microscan data with an image in the macroscan data.

  • Publication number: 20170196590
    Abstract: Devices for guiding an instrument into a body of a patient, at a targeted point of entry and along an insertion path at a targeted insertion angle, are described herein, such as a guide for an access needle in a PCNL procedure for accessing the kidney to remove kidney stones, the devices comprising a base component, a guide assembly, and optionally an insertion mechanism. The base component is aligned in use with the point of entry and the guide assembly cooperates with the base component to allow for the instrument to be aligned and fixed at any circumferential angle around an axis perpendicular to the point of entry and at any vertical angle ranging from 0 to 45 degrees away from the axis in a direction toward the body. The optional mechanism allows for mechanical insertion once the instrument is aligned and fixed.
