SAGE near-field low-frequency electromagnetic technology is a cost effective, accurate, and easy to use 3D tracking and navigation platform for placement of catheters, stylets, guidewires, needles, and other medical devices.
SAGE employs one or more microcoils incorporated into a medical device, which are electrically driven to create a low-frequency magnetic field. A sensor module containing an array of magnetic field sensors is located outside the patient, and plugged into a laptop or other computer system with a display. Measurements from the sensors are fed into a complex algorithm that calculates the position and orientation of the medical device, and the location information is displayed and updated in realtime.
The low-frequency signal from the SAGE coil is essentially immune to interference from nearby metals or other magnetic materials, allowing movement of the sensor module or patient without any recalibration of the system.
