MAXIO® is an image-guided, physician controlled stereotactic accessory to a Computed Tomography (CT) system. MAXIO® is intended for the stereotactic spatial positioning and orientation of an end effector and instrument guide to assist in manual advancement of one or more instruments such as rigid straight needles and probes during CT guided percutaneous procedures on organs and anatomical structures in the thorax, abdomen and pelvis.
MAXIO® provides pre-operative planning assistance by visually representing the planned instrument path and position(s) of one or more instruments on the model, along with performance data provided by the instrument manufacturer or as specified by the user.
MAXIO® provides intra-operative guidance and post-procedure verification support by registering images from multiple series.
MAXIO® consists of a stereotactic device and its accessories, software loaded on a computer, and a respiratory gating system. MAXIO® uses single use sterile disposables viz, end effector, instrument guide and drapes.
MAXIO® is intended to be used by physicians trained for CT procedures.
