Title (EN) COMBINATION OF ELECTROMAGNETIC AND ELECTROPOTENTIAL LOCALIZATION
(FR) ASSOCIATION DE LOCALISATION ELECTROMAGNETIQUE ET PAR POTENTIEL ELECTRIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A navigation system or combination of navigation systems can be used to provide two or more types of navigation or modalities of navigation to navigate a single instrument. The single instrument can be positioned within the patient and tracked. For example, both an Electromagnetic (EM) and Electropotential (EP) navigation system can be used to navigate an instrument within a patient.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système de navigation ou une association de systèmes de navigation pouvant être mis en œuvre pour fournir au moins deux types de navigation ou de modalités de navigation pour diriger un instrument unique. Cet instrument unique peut être placé dans le corps d'un patient et localisé. Un système de navigation électromagnétique et un système de navigation par potentiel électrique peuvent par exemple permettre de diriger un instrument dans le corps d'un patient.
