Reducing X-Ray Exposure, Increasing Accuracy. Brainlab Spinal Navigation

February 12, 2014

Brainlab Spinal Navigation offers a solution to reduce radiation exposure to surgeons and their surgical team within spinal procedures.¹

Through real-time visualization of instruments in any image modality greater accuracy and safe placement of implants can be achieved² while considerably sparing X-Ray exposure to the surgeon. Brainlab Spinal Navigation addresses the challenges of minimally invasive and complex spinal surgeries at all stages of surgery — from incision planning to implant placement. Automatic registration of images with Fluoro 3D allows convenient integration of 3D C-arms for spine and trauma procedures for real-time navigation of intraoperative datasets.
