Micromate robotic system can increase reliability and improve workflow


Reto Bale (Innsbruck, Austria) talks to Interventional News at the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe (CIRSE) 2022 annual meeting (10–14 September, Barcelona, Spain) about some of the key benefits of using navigation and robotics during interventional radiology and oncology procedures, such as the ability to “increase reliability and reproducibility” and “improve workflow”.

Bale discusses his initial experience of using an early robotic system for cone beam computed tomography (CBCT)-guided procedures for bone interventions, noting that, with this technology, “you can precisely reach nearly every target in the body from head to toe”.

One of the major strengths of the Micromate robotic system (Interventional Systems) “is that it is very flexible” states Bale, who concludes that “it is a very interesting tool to do all types of CT-guided procedures, including radiofrequency ablation”.
