Advance your frame-based neurosurgical procedures with modular Elements software for stereotactic planning and experience a new level of arc and implant integration.
Elements Stereotaxy consolidates fibers and atlas objects for more detailed trajectory planning and frame coordinates. Localization of MR or CT images and arc coordinate calculation is available for a variety of stereotactic frame systems.
Elements Segmentation automatically contours 16 anatomical structures of the basal ganglia region, including Subthalamic Nucleus (STN), Globus Pallidus Internal (GPI), Ventral Intermediate (VIM) Nucleus. Based on MR data, this patient-specific atlas provides a detailed map for planning of stereotactic surgery procedures such as deep brain stimulation.
Elements Fibertracking processes and visualizes DTI data to enable preservation of vital functions in eloquent white matter structures. Incorporated into the Elements for Stereotaxy workflow, segmented atlas objects like the VIM can be used as a seed point.
Elements Lead Localization extends software support in functional neurosurgery beyond preoperative planning. Deep brain stimulation leads from any manufacturer are automatically detected in postoperative CT scans with their contacts visualized in relation to the patient’s anatomy.
In place since 2015, a strategic collaboration with Boston Scientific Corporation provides patients and physicians with a comprehensive portfolio for deep brain stimulation therapy – a therapy intended to treat a variety of disorders, including Parkinson’s disease.
Boston Scientific distributes the Brainlab Elements planning portfolio with the Boston Scientific Vercise™ Deep Brain Stimulation family of systems in selected countries, offering physicians advanced device technology with sophisticated software capabilities.
Together Elekta and Brainlab ensure the continuous evolution of interoperability and safety of Leksell Stereotactic Systems and Elements Stereotaxy software. The integrated use of established hardware with powerful software is designed to assure safety in stereotactic neurosurgical procedures.
In 2017, Brainlab became the authorized distributor of Elekta’s stereotactic solutions for neurosurgery, including Vantage, in selected markets in Europe (Belgium, France, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland) and exclusively in the United States.
This partnership with the leading manufacturer of stereotactic frames and accessories enables Brainlab to offer solutions for all stages of stereotactic procedures, from planning to surgery. For more information please visit: www.brainlab.com/elekta
