1. A system for performing a navigation procedure, the system comprising:
a surgical tool configured to be navigated to a target tissue located in a target area and to perform a surgical procedure on the target tissue;
an imaging device configured to acquire image data of the target area while the surgical tool is being navigated to the target tissue, the imaging device including a motor configured to drive the imaging device in a first direction then a second direction opposing the first direction along an arcuate path relative to the target area;
a user interface for a clinician to set one or more parameters of the imaging device, the parameters including at least one of a length of the path or a speed at which the imaging device traverses the path; and
a computing device configured to receive the image data acquired by the imaging device and display the image data on the user interface in real-time as the imaging device drives in the first direction then the second direction opposing the first direction along the path, wherein the surgical tool can be navigated to the target tissue while under visualization of at least a portion of the surgical tool relative to the target tissue from multiple perspectives,
wherein the imaging device is configured to output:
a first level of radiation along a first portion of the path to acquire a plurality of fluoroscopic images along the first portion of the path, the first portion of the path having a first length; and
a second level of radiation higher than the first level of radiation along a second portion of the path different from the first portion to acquire a video along the second portion of the path, the second portion of the path having a second length less than the first length.
