A new imaging and navigation system helps physicians see internal organs, bones, and vessels.
The Cbyon Suite from Cbyon Inc. creates a virtual 3-D model of a patient using data from magnetic resonance images, X-rays, ultrasounds and other types of scans. Doctors can peel through the data layer by layer and pinpoint the location of their surgical tools within 6 mm.
