Abstract

We present a closed-loop taxonomy framework for interventional procedures assisting to understand and locate an increasing number of "buzz-word driven" techniques within the workflow of the interventionalist. Our framework applies equally for open and minimally invasive techniques and emphasizes the fact that all steps within an interventional procedure act as a closed chain, thus none of them can be regarded separately from all others. We give a concrete example of one of the first soft tissue navigation systems introduced to clinical routine since 2002.
