Hansen Medical (NASDAQ:HNSN) has announced further advancements in intra-vascular robotics combined with 3D imaging capabilities.

The announcement coincided with activities taking place at this week's Pumps and Pipes meeting in Houston, Texas.

The company is showcasing its Magellan Robotic technology at the meeting. Hansen said the system allows real-time tracking of the robotic catheter, sheath and wire in multiple visualization environments.

This advancement will enable physicians to locate the Magellan Robotic Catheters in a 3D environment during endovascular procedures. 

This breakthrough could lead to an eventual reduction and possible elimination of a need for radiation to be used in interventional procedures, the company claimed.

Dr Alan Lumsden from the Houston Methodist medical team, said: “This can lead to transformational change in the way endovascular procedures are completed. This is a major step toward automated navigation becoming a procedural reality."

“Think of this in terms of a GPS [global positioning satellite] system combined with a NASA docking system," he added.

Shares in Hansen were down 16 cents at US$3.15 in late morning trading.
