{ "circle" : 1, "current" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0, "w" : 400}, "top" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0, "w" : 200}, "bottom" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0, "w" : 200}, "images" : [ {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/blue.png", "opacity" : 1, "offset" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0}}, {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-2/1.png", "opacity" : 0, "offset" : {"x" : -200, "y" : -100}}, {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-2/2.png", "opacity" : 0, "offset" : {"x" : -200, "y" : 0}}, {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-2/3.png", "opacity" : 0, "offset" : {"x" : 200, "y" : 0}} ], "navigation" : { "title" : "Preoperative scans", "image" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-2/dot.png" }, "mobile" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-2/full.png" }

1Preoperative scans

Having easy access to preoperative scans is the first step to making the entire surgical process more efficient. Trade in outdated methods of transferring scans, like CDs, for healthcare IT integration. Easily access preop images in the office or directly from the operating room.

{ "circle" : 1, "current" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0, "w" : 400}, "top" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0, "w" : 200}, "bottom" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0, "w" : 200}, "images" : [ {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/blue.png", "opacity" : 1, "offset" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0}}, {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-3/1.png", "opacity" : 0, "offset" : {"x" : -200, "y" : -100}}, {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-3/2.png", "opacity" : 0, "offset" : {"x" : 200, "y" : 0}} ], "navigation" : { "title" : "Surgical planning", "image" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-3/dot.png" }, "mobile" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-3/full.png" }

2Surgical planning

Once you have easily accessed your patient images, you can plan the surgery with automated software, which allow surgeons to enhance images by highlighting organs at risk, outlining the tumor to be resected, planning the approach, fusing different scan modalities together and more.

{ "circle" : 1, "current" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0, "w" : 400}, "top" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0, "w" : 200}, "bottom" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0, "w" : 200}, "images" : [ {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/blue.png", "opacity" : 1, "offset" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0}}, {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-4/1.png", "opacity" : 0, "offset" : {"x" : -200, "y" : -100}}, {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-4/3.png", "opacity" : 0, "offset" : {"x" : -200, "y" : 0}}, {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-4/2.png", "opacity" : 0, "offset" : {"x" : 200, "y" : 0}} ], "navigation" : { "title" : "Interdisciplinary discussions", "image" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-4/dot.png" }, "mobile" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-4/full.png" }

3Interdisciplinary discussions

Now it’s time to discuss the completed plan with the team. Digitalizing the review process allows interdisciplinary teams to review the case together, even remotely, with secure cloud access to patient files. Advanced digital collaboration tools like mixed reality further enhance case review.

{ "circle" : 1, "current" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0, "w" : 400}, "top" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0, "w" : 200}, "bottom" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0, "w" : 200}, "images" : [ {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/pink.png", "opacity" : 1, "offset" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0}}, {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-5/1.png", "opacity" : 0, "offset" : {"x" : -200, "y" : -100}}, {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-5/2.png", "opacity" : 0, "offset" : {"x" : -200, "y" : 0}}, {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-5/3.png", "opacity" : 0, "offset" : {"x" : 200, "y" : 0}} ], "navigation" : { "title" : "Patient consultation", "image" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-5/dot.png" }, "mobile" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-5/full.png" }

4Patient consultation

The team knows the plan, and now you’re ready to discuss the upcoming surgery with the patient. Help them understand their diagnosis and procedure by showing them 3D visualizations of their own anatomy and the planned surgery on screen or with spatial computing devices.

{ "circle" : 1, "current" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0, "w" : 400}, "top" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0, "w" : 200}, "bottom" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0, "w" : 200}, "images" : [ {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/blue.png", "opacity" : 1, "offset" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0}}, {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-6/1.png", "opacity" : 0, "offset" : {"x" : -200, "y" : -100}}, {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-6/2.png", "opacity" : 0, "offset" : {"x" : -200, "y" : 0}}, {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-6/3.png", "opacity" : 0, "offset" : {"x" : 200, "y" : 0}} ], "navigation" : { "title" : "Before surgery begins", "image" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-6/dot.png" }, "mobile" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-6/full.png" }

5Before surgery begins

Having plans and patient data available in the operating room helps your entire department stay organized. With digital operating room integration, patient data can be automatically pre-fetched the night before and the patient checklist digitalized to facilitate an efficient start to surgery.

{ "circle" : 1, "current" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0, "w" : 400}, "top" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0, "w" : 200}, "bottom" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0, "w" : 200}, "images" : [ {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/blue.png", "opacity" : 1, "offset" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0}}, {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-7/1.png", "opacity" : 0, "offset" : {"x" : -200, "y" : -100}}, {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-7/2.png", "opacity" : 0, "offset" : {"x" : -200, "y" : 0}}, {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-7/3.png", "opacity" : 0, "offset" : {"x" : 200, "y" : 0}} ], "navigation" : { "title" : "Surgical data setup", "image" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-7/dot.png" }, "mobile" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-7/full.png" }

6Surgical data setup

Now that the patient-specific data is ready in the O.R., it can be routed to best suit the preference of the surgical team. Digital data management systems in the operating room allow patient information, images and preop plans to be displayed as needed across all connected screens.

{ "circle" : 1, "current" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0, "w" : 400}, "top" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0, "w" : 200}, "bottom" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0, "w" : 200}, "images" : [ {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/blue.png", "opacity" : 1, "offset" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0}}, {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-8/1.png", "opacity" : 0, "offset" : {"x" : -200, "y" : -100}}, {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-8/3.png", "opacity" : 0, "offset" : {"x" : -200, "y" : 0}}, {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-8/2.png", "opacity" : 0, "offset" : {"x" : 200, "y" : 0}} ], "navigation" : { "title" : "Digitally empowered surgery", "image" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-8/dot.png" }, "mobile" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-8/full.png" }

7Digitally empowered surgery

Now, surgery can begin. There are so many digital technologies available to support surgeons and their teams intraoperatively: Surgical navigation devices and software, augmented reality microscope visualization, robotic assistance and intraoperative imaging, to name a few.

{ "circle" : 1, "current" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0, "w" : 400}, "top" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0, "w" : 200}, "bottom" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0, "w" : 200}, "images" : [ {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/blue.png", "opacity" : 1, "offset" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0}}, {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-9/1.png", "opacity" : 0, "offset" : {"x" : -200, "y" : -100}}, {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-9/3.png", "opacity" : 0, "offset" : {"x" : -200, "y" : 0}}, {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-9/2.png", "opacity" : 0, "offset" : {"x" : 200, "y" : 0}} ], "navigation" : { "title" : "Postop Documentation", "image" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-9/dot.png" }, "mobile" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-9/full.png" }

8Postop Documentation

Surgery is now complete and it’s time to document the procedure. With a digitally integrated operating room, surgical data and documentation can be saved directly to the patient’s file automatically. Once saved, they can be accessed from anywhere through the hospital archives.

{ "circle" : 1, "current" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0, "w" : 400}, "top" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0, "w" : 200}, "bottom" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0, "w" : 200}, "images" : [ {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/pink.png", "opacity" : 1, "offset" : {"x" : 0, "y" : 0}}, {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-10/1.png", "opacity" : 0, "offset" : {"x" : -200, "y" : -100}}, {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-10/2.png", "opacity" : 0, "offset" : {"x" : -200, "y" : 0}}, {"path" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-10/3.png", "opacity" : 0, "offset" : {"x" : 200, "y" : 0}} ], "navigation" : { "title" : "Patient follow-up", "image" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-10/dot.png" }, "mobile" : "/wp-content/themes/brainlab_two/assets/interactive-graphic/dior-circuit/images/screen-10/full.png" }
