Since its installation in May 2014, Prof. Dr. med. Zech and his team have been using 3D LNS to simplify and accelerate the wide range of CT interventions in hospital operations. First evaluations show clear advantages of 3D-LNS 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 LNS. The use of 3D LNS halved the radiation exposure of patients and young colleagues were able to puncture with 3D LNS three times faster than before.

The LNS 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.
