Since its installation in May 2014, Prof. Dr. med. Zech and his team have been using 3D LNR to simplify and accelerate the wide range of CT interventions in hospital operations. First evaluations show clear advantages of 3D-LNR in comparison to freehand puncture.

At the RSNA 2015, the group around Prof. Dr. med. Zech (in the picture below with his team) presented first results of a study on 3D LNR. The use of 3D LNR halved the radiation exposure of patients and young colleagues were able to puncture with 3D LNR three times faster than before.

The LNR laser guides the instruments quickly and safely to the target, regardless of whether a simple drainage with axial access or a complicated tumor therapy with several double-angled needle passes has to be performed.
