The Food and Drug Administration has granted 510(k) marketing

clearance to a free-hand version of ISG Technologies' Viewing

Wand image-guided surgery system (SCAN 10/25/95). This version

of Viewing Wand uses light-emitting diodes to track the probe's

position, dispensing with the articulated arm used in the earlier

version of the product. The free-hand version is essential for

spinal applications, according to the Mississauga, Ontario, company.

ISG's first version of Viewing Wand received 510(k) clearance

in 1994 (SCAN 5/4/94).
