Surgical planning technology facilitates evaluation of complex anatomy and helps to enhance and speed up disease interpretation. Patient-specific 3D planning is also beneficial when used in the operating room and offered to the surgeon during the intervention as a guide1. The use of planning technology in the O.R., however, is often limited by the difficulty in finding a single, fast, easy-to-use software able to work independently from radiology, load PACS patient images, import patient segmentation obtained by another software, render this in 3D, and fuse the information2.
From the office with Brainlab Elements Planning Software, the surgeon can work with patient images in 3D to accurately outline tumors and structures at risk, plan trajectories, and fuse images like CT and MR. Planned cases are then automatically sent to PACS or the HIS and available on Buzz through an HL7 and DICOM integration for immediate use in the O.R.
Tailored to the surgeon’s needs, Brainlab Elements Viewer can be used to create, enhance and edit 3D reconstructions of patient anatomy from various images like CT, MR, X-Ray and PET before, during or after surgery.
