Fusion imaging makes visible for the whole team what is in the operator’s mind

Tilo Kölbel (Hamburg, Germany, and co-director of Aortic Live) tells Vascular News about the recently installed fusion imaging system from Cydar Medical, which connects live images from the operating room to the power of cloud computing. Kölbel shares his first impressions of the system’s ease-of-use and shares his hope that there will soon be new software to deal with the deformation of vessels that is caused by stiff wires and introduction systems.
