Brainlab creates and integrates products for various stages and phases of the surgical procedure, from software for pre-planning, to software and systems for surgical navigation, to data management and manipulation, and intraoperative imaging and surgical follow-up. This integration helps clinicians fully leverage patient data in an era in which data is continuously growing in volume and complexity.
Similar to a car or mobile phone global positioning system, surgical navigation—also called image guided surgery, computer-assisted surgery, software-guided surgery—continuously tracks surgical instrumentation in relation to actual patient anatomy and displays the relationship, in real time, on a software screen during surgery.
At the core of all our platforms is Brainlab software, designed for both routine and complex surgical procedures. Intuitive user interfaces provide accelerated workflows for image-guided surgery. Brainlab software offers universal tool integration and an open platform for surgeons to use the implant and tool manufacturers of their choice.
Brainlab Cranial Navigation Software exhibits the same flexibility with all major microscope vendors. Combined with mobile or ceiling-mounted Brainlab navigation platforms, surgeons have access to visualization capabilities and registration techniques through multi-touch screens.
Automatic Image Registration ensures fast patient registration of intraoperative images for uninterrupted navigation.
Brainlab Elements surgical apps help surgeons make the most of patient data during pre-operative planning. With automated features such as Image Fusion and SmartBrush, Elements offer intelligent planning for a wide variety of procedures.
Surgical navigation with Brainlab is comprehensive and scalable, with platforms ranging from fully equipped to minimalistic. Curve™ Image Guided Surgery is the ultimate command and control center, transforming traditional surgical navigation into Brainlab information-guided surgery. For more streamlined navigation, Kick® Purely Navigation, available with optical or electromagnetic (EM) tracking, offers flexibility and efficiency with a minimalistic design and footprint.
Access to real time information is transforming the surgical space and becoming integral to daily practice in the O.R. Mobile Intraoperative CT allows clinicians to maximize information for surgical decision-making through immediate quality control scans to verify progress before continuing or concluding surgery.
Buzz® Digital O.R. is a centralized information hub that simplifies effective management of increasingly complex operating room data requirements and data. This computer- and IP-based system allows for the effective handling of information relevant in the O.R.
Brainlab radiosurgery/radiotherapy software and hardware provide the ability to plan, monitor and deliver radiation treatment for patients with cancerous or functional diseases. Various software applications and hardware systems offer the advanced tools required for optimized treatment planning, monitoring and verification to achieve high precision throughout the whole course of the treatment.
iPlan® RT software expands treatment planning capabilities for premium radiosurgery with advanced, high performance tools and offers straightforward, automated clinical workflows. Treatments can be precisely planned through a choice of multiple delivery techniques.
Brainlab Elements are a suite of radiotherapy planning solutions that work seamlessly together, delivering capability without complexity. This modular approach allows users to effectively achieve their daily treatment planning tasks in a streamlined and straightforward manner. Brainlab Elements bridge disciplines and offer working and scalable connections between clinical subspecialties like radiation oncology and neurosurgery.
In use at over 480 hospitals worldwide, Novalis® Radiosurgery offers targeted non- or minimally invasive* radiosurgery treatments for cancerous and non-cancerous conditions of the entire body. With the Novalis Certified program, everyone—from surgeons to other caregivers to patients and their families—can better understand the measures that hospitals take to keep patients safe and provide specialized care. Surgeons and radiation oncologists using Novalis Radiosurgery are part of a worldwide network of clinicians dedicated to the advancement of radiosurgery.
ExacTrac® X-Ray offers patient position monitoring during radiation treatment. ExacTrac detects patient-, random- or breathing-induced tumor movement, which can be compensated for with ExacTrac or any other IGRT tool preferred by the clinician. The monitoring is based on the internal anatomy of the patient and therefore provides highly accurate position confirmation. This precision enables the use of frameless radiosurgery instead of the head frame that is generally used in stereotactic treatments.
*Some doctors may opt to use a minimally invasive head frame for certain procedures.
Information & Knowledge Sharing
Integration of Brainlab patient data tools simplifies treatment workflow and inspires collaboration between clinicians.
Quentry® is the Brainlab cloud-based service for image sharing and collaboration.
Quentry gives hospitals, clinics, imaging centers and physicians the freedom to access, control and share diagnostic imaging from anywhere within a secure clinical network.
Origin Server allows simultaneous or sequential planning from various locations on one server. It also works across different hospitals, making Origin Server convenient for inter-disciplinary work. Surgeons can actively participate in critical treatment steps, when and where they choose, on-site or remotely.
With a variety of customizable options, Brainlab technology maintains integrity while adapting to resource and workflow needs. Continuing to advance our planning and treatment technology is how Brainlab inspires collaboration and drives greater access to and consistency of treatments.
