Brainlab Navigation enhances visualization with a wide variety of image registration options
Fluoro 3D Registration allows intraoperative integration of 3D C-arms for spine and trauma procedures allowing real-time navigation of intraoperative datasets—ideal for less-invasive and complex surgeries. This automatic image registration enables fast and reliable navigation as well as seamless compatibility with all common 3D C-arms such as Ziehm Vision RFD 3D and Siemens ARCADIS® Orbic 3D.
Practicality and simplicity are key factors when registering images for navigation. With Brainlab Spine and Trauma Navigation registration of conventional 2D images can be performed easily by acquiring two fluoroscopic shots with the autoclavable, handheld device xSpot. Compatibility is given with all common 2D C-arms such as Ziehm Vision RFD 3D and Vision FD and Siemens ARCADIS® Varic and Orbic 3D.
Integration of Siemens multi-axis Artis zeego with Brainlab Spine, Trauma and Cranial Applications offers real-time navigation on intraoperative 3D syngo DynaCT scans. Automatic Image Registration enables quick registration and reliable navigation.
Surface Matching is a fast registration method based on a pre-operative CT scan, designed for open surgeries. Registration is performed manually by acquiring a set of points with the pointer on bone surface. An auto-correcting algorithm matches the acquired points with the pre-operative CT scan within seconds. Attached to the pointer, SmartClip enables remote control of the application.
CT-Fluoro Matching allows for the registration of pre-operative CT scans with two conventional C-arm images and the handheld, autoclavable device xSpot. The less-invasive registration method applies especially for minimally invasive procedures.
Co-Registration allows additional registration of a pre-operative CT scan with an automatically registered Fluoro 3D scan. Co-Registration results in an improvement in image quality, applicable especially, for example, in cases involving obese patients.
For additional soft tissue information, for instance, in tumor treatment, Fusion brings full pre-operative MR information together with a registered CT scan. Thus, critical information derived from CT and MR scans can be used simultaneously in spine tumor treatment.
Brainlab Navigation supports seamless compatibility with all common C-arms as from Siemens, Ziehm, GE and Philips. The appropriate registration method can be chosen from a range of possibilities according to the individual surgical procedure and imaging device.
