Philips has developed a device known as the EmboGuide in order to assist interventional radiologists during embolization. The device combines previously entered planning information with real-time x-rays that give feedback on the positioning of catheters. In trial runs, the device has been shown to minimize error and optimize the success of catheter placement and overall procedure. Click the video above to watch the EmboGuide in action.
