Safety And Accuracy Study Of The Actisight™ Needle Guidance System In Patients Undergoing CT-Guided Procedures
This will be a prospective, single-arm, single-center, open-label study to evaluate the preliminary safety and accuracy of the ActiSight™ Needle Guidance System in patients undergoing CT-guided percutaneous aspiration and RF Ablations The procedure will be performed by a trained physician. Subjects will be screened for inclusion in the study. Following signing of informed consent, screening procedures will be performed including demographic and medical history, vital signs, anthropometrics), chest radiography, if applicable and CT scanning, blood samples for coagulation indices (PT, APTT), if applicable, and pregnancy test in women of child-bearing potential.
Within an 18-day screening period, eligible subjects will be enrolled into the study and undergo percutaneous aspiration or percutaneous biopsy or RF ablation utilizing the ActiSight™ Needle Guidance system using CT to guide the needle. Subjects will be followed-up for at least one hour at the clinic for safety and preliminary accuracy evaluations. An erect chest radiograph will be performed within 90 minutes of observation after chest aspiration if performed to detect the majority of post procedure pneumothoraces for biopsies in the chest. Post procedural CT will be performed according to the physician's consideration. ** Note ** If any complications are observed while using the ActiSight System, the investigator will revert to using standard procedure.
