Portable, intuitive, smart – CARINAnav
CARINAnav is the control system for the DORADO and DORADOnova laser. It is the connecting piece between the treatment planning system and the LAP laser system. CARINAnav transmits the exact spatial coordinates to the movable lasers, which projects the laser lines onto the patient with precision.
CARINAnav was developed for use via touch screen and can be operated either flexibly at the patient with a tablet PC or via desktop PC from the control room. Depending on the workflow and process step, it is necessary to define coordinates based on the patient's anatomy or to project defined coordinates from the treatment planning.
For this reason, coordinates can be entered in 3 different ways: Per manual control, position input or data import. There are 3 data interfaces available for data import: DICOM Standard or LAP file format are available for transmitting coordinates. Customers using the SIEMENS syngo.via RT Image Suite have the option of controlling the lasers directly from the imaging software.
Direct Laser Steering with the syngo. via RT Image Suite
With the syngo. via RT Image Suite from SIEMENS Healthineers, the DORADO, DORADOnova or DORADOnova MR3T laser system can be controlled directly (Direct Laser Steering). The operation at the CARINAnav is no longer necessary. The integration of the external LAP lasers is thus comparable to direct lasers on the CT.
Direct Laser Steering allows the target coordinate to be set after contouring the tumor and organs at risk, transferred directly to the lasers, and the patient marked accordingly. This allows your team to work efficiently and safely.
Is the software pre-installed on the tablet/desktop PC?
Yes, the software will be installed during production and is ready to use after installation.
How is the connection to the Treatment Planning System provided?
The tablet PC (with docking station) or the desktop PC is connected to the clinical LAN. The tablet PC can also be connected via wifi. The devices can communicate with each other via (static) IP addresses.
Do I get training on how to use the software?
Yes, every customer get's a training for the clinical admin and the clinical users. Software operation and all procedures for the various workflows will be explained and all questions answered.
