The Navigatorô GPS system is used in a sentinel node mapping procedure. The system is designed and manufactured by RMD Instruments, LLC, of Watertown, MA. The Navigator system is RMD's most popular system.
Instant On - Turn Power On
∑ Display shows event rate in counts per second.
∑ Audible signal starts in most sensitive range - X1 - to indicate changes in low event rates.
∑ The RMD prbes have a stable and common gain across all probe models.
∑ No calibration of probe to control unit is required before use.
∑ Isotope indicator. Four are located inside display window. One illuminates. Provides visual confirmation of user-selected position of rear panel ISOTOPE Control. Set-up is easier. Isotope Indicator helps ensure that system is configured properly for a procedure.
Energy Selection - Automatic
∑ Threshold Control is already ON. This position reduces energy scattered events in signal.
∑ Press THRESHOLD Control OFF to increase sensitivity to isolated sites.
∑ ISOTOPE Control on real panel includes Tc-99m position, In-111, I-131, and I-125.
∑ 511 keV ready. When 511 keV position of ISOTOPE INDICATOR is illuminated, control unit accomodates a Navigatorô Gamma-PET probe for radiopharmaceuticals such as FDG (fluorodeoxyglucose) and the detection of 511 keV photons.
Audible Signal - Instantaneous
∑ Each new detected event is instantaneously represented in the audible signal. No delay. Display - Simple
∑ Bright green Vacuum fluorescent display is easily viewable at a distance.
∑ Counts per second. Press the COUNT button, 10 second timed count.
∑ Improved display of ten second count. 10 second timed count total is shown for a longer perios of time to allow a user to observe and record the total count. Supports Additional Probes from RMD
∑ Standard Lymphatic Mapping Probe shown above.
∑ Numerous probe models are available from RMD.
CWIís marketing area for RMD products is restricted to MA, ME, NH, CT, RI and VT.
