3D-LNS upgrades your CT to an interventional workspace!

Planning is easy: just draw a line and activate it!

Easy intervention: instantly the LNS laser guides your needle to the target.

3D-LNS will be installed to the ceiling of your CT room.

If you don´t use it press the button to park 3D-LNS under the ceiling.

3D-LNS: Your reliable assistant for perfect CT-guided interventions

With the "3D-LNS" laser navigation system, all CT-guided interventions can be performed quickly and easily.

  • Plan your intervention with the intuitive LNS-planning software.
  • The LNS-laser guides you to the puncture site.
  • Place any number of instruments in free orientation.

3D-LNS: Field of application

3D-LNS facilitates any kind of CT-guided intervention: whether simple drainage with axial access or a complicated tumor therapy with several double - angulated needles.

  • Biopsy
  • Drainage
  • Tumor therapy
  • Pain therapy
  • Infiltration
  • Denervation
  • Trauma surgery

The LNS-laser guides your puncture instruments quickly and easily to their destination in any CT-guided intervention.

3D-LNS: Workflow

  • After switching on, 3D-LNS is ready for operation in no time.
  • Obtain the CT-images of your patient.
  • Plan the punctures by drawing lines in axial and/or freely-angulated images.
  • 3D-LNS indicates the skin puncture site by laser.
  • Insert the needle at the laser point and align the needle to the laser beam. The laser marks the puncture trajectory.
  • Insert the needle up to the indicated depth. Now you have reached your destination.

3D-LNS: Benefits

"Optimize your workflow"

Compared to freehand-puncture and other CT navigation systems, 3D-LNS™ offers substantial benefits.

  • Intuitive and easy operation.
  • 3D-LNS instantly provides all intervention parameters (CT-table position, puncture site, puncture angle, puncture depth).
  • Optimized workflow with significantly reduced intervention time.
  • Risk prevention: Highest precision and elimination of error-prone process steps.
  • Reduced pain: Quick, very precise puncture.
  • 50% less exposure to radiation.
  • Contactless navigation: Fully tactile feedback.
  • No special equipment required: Use your usual instruments.


"Increase your turnover"

amedo 3D-LNS™ offers substantial economic benefits compared to standard procedures:

  • The costs of treatment are reduced thanks to higher CT-utilization, the deployment of less experienced personnel and a reduction of additional disposables.
  • Depending on the treatment method and frequency, ROI is achieved after only a few months (example calculations on request).
  • Risks and follow-up treatments are avoided.
  • Quality and calculability of the treatment process are significantly improved.
  • Customer perception and satisfaction are enhanced thanks to quick, pain-reduced and low-radiation treatment.

3D-LNS: Technology

3D-LNS consists of a computer workstation on the CT-console and a mechanical system in the CT-room. The mechanical system is installed at the ceiling of the CT-room and can be swiveled in front of the CT-gantry, if required. An additional monitor is installed in the CT-room.

  • The physician plans a puncture in the LNS-planning software by drawing a line on an axial or freely-angled CT-image.
  • After activating an intervention plan, the laser is positioned by the fully-automatic system with maximum precision. The laser beam marks the needle path.
  • There are no registrations or adjustments required.
  • A simple, daily test ensures the accuracy of the 3D-LNS.
