ANGIO Mentor AR Proctoring Tool
The First Radiation Awareness Augmented Reality Simulation Add-On
A Proctoring Tool Which Provides Awareness To The Harmful Ionizing Radiation Generated During X-Ray-Guided Procedures
The augmented reality-based application connects to the Simbionix ANGIO Mentor, to allow cath lab and hybrid OR teams practice various endovascular simulation cases, and establish the ALARA principles, by effectively grasping the three basic protective measures; time, distance, and shielding.
Based on clinical studies and radiation distribution models*, compatible with all generations of ANGIO Mentor Suite
Using augmented reality technology, the application shows real-time radiation scatter in the room, taking into consideration C-arm projections and other imaging parameters.
Features and Benefits
- Connects to a variety of simulation modules in real time.
- Enables a radiation-free proctoring for radiation safety in a real-life clinical settings.
- Integrates radiation scatter visualization with a real C-arm that may be connected to the simulator.
- Based on clinical studies and radiation distribution models.
- Compatible with all generations of ANGIO Mentor Suite
- Supports remote screen sharing – a great tool for webinars.
- Both Wi-Fi and Cable connection are available.
