To assist in guiding a rigid interventional instrument percutaneously, to a designated point within the body by means of CT visualization.
The ActiSight™ Needle Guidance System is an optical navigation system designed to assist physicians performing percutaneous interventions under CT guidance. The system allows the user to select an obstacle free path to a target lesion based on pre-procedure CT images, and then provides real-time information for guiding the interventional tool towards the target along the selected path.
The ActiSight™ Needle Guidance System employs a miniature video camera mounted on the needle and a reference pad attached to the skin to register the needle into the CT image space, and thus, track the needle advance towards the target. CT scans are used as needed to verify the location of the needle.
The primary objective of this study is to demonstrate the effectiveness of the ActiSight™ Needle Guidance System in assisting in CT-guided percutaneous procedures.

A diverse group of lung diseases that affect the lung parenchyma. They are characterized by an initial inflammation of PULMONARY ALVEOLI that extends to the interstitium and beyond leading to diffuse PULMONARY FIBROSIS. Interstitial lung diseases are classified by their etiology (known or unknown causes), and radiological-pathological features.
Usage of a single needle among two or more people for injecting drugs. Needle sharing is a high-risk behavior for contracting infectious disease.
Diseases of the parasympathetic or sympathetic divisions of the AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM; which has components located in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM and PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. Autonomic dysfunction may be associated with HYPOTHALAMIC DISEASES; BRAIN STEM disorders; SPINAL CORD DISEASES; and PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES. Manifestations include impairments of vegetative functions including the maintenance of BLOOD PRESSURE; HEART RATE; pupil function; SWEATING; REPRODUCTIVE AND URINARY PHYSIOLOGY; and DIGESTION.
Pathological processes involving any part of the LUNG.
Gait abnormalities that are a manifestation of nervous system dysfunction. These conditions may be caused by a wide variety of disorders which affect motor control, sensory feedback, and muscle strength including: CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; NEUROMUSCULAR DISEASES; or MUSCULAR DISEASES.
