Airo® provides full Hounsfield soft tissue imaging that offers better definition for the spine. This expands clinical decision-making for cranial and other surgical procedures as well. The scan volume of D 50 x 100cm allows surgeons to image the entire spine in a single scan and to visualize more anatomical context than 3D C-arms.
Innovative design intelligently combines the largest gantry opening on the market with a slim gantry and small footprint. The gantry houses custom components including an X-Ray tube, 32-slice helical scan detector array, high-voltage generator, air-cooling system and built-in battery pack.
Total integration of the O.R. table offers fixed correlation between patient and scanner resulting in reproducible imaging.
Suspension-controlled, the Airo electrical drive system features a solo central wheel for compact maneuvering. Equipped with user-friendly control software, even one person can easily move Airo from O.R. to O.R. The front-view safety camera ensures stress-free portability.
The compact Airo system pendant controls everything. During procedures, surgeons and staff program imaging with laser alignment and dose display from the detachable and user-friendly Airo touch screen. Movement and maintenance are also swift and steady with the Airo handheld system controller commanding transport, daily calibration and system maintenance.
Fully adaptable, Airo moves into a variety of procedural setups for cranial, spine and trauma cases. The extra-large gantry opening expands intraoperative surgical value and even accommodates spinal positioning frames.
Communication between Airo and Curve™ makes connection to Brainlab image guided surgery systems swift, image transfer automatic, and the merging of pre- and intraoperative scans a snap.
