Laser guided alignment of Loop-X robotic intraoperative imaging

Leave manually counting levels behind with robotics

Smart laser projections remove the intraop imaging ‘fiddle factor’. By defining the level of interest on a 2D image, Loop-X robotically supports localization and projects both the incision start and end points directly onto the patient’s skin.

The patient is the focal point – not the isocenter

The detector and imaging source move independently enabling non-isocentric imaging. Patients don’t need to be positioned in the center of the gantry since the system moves the scan area to the region of interest.

Verification has never been easier

Screw placement verification is a critical yet often time-consuming task in surgery. Instrument guided imaging allows Loop-X to robotically follow the pointer or a pre-planned screw and position itself for AP, lateral or even oblique 2D verification scans.

FAQs – Loop-X

There are several options on the market such as intraoperative CT scanners, 3D C-arms and other intraoperative cone beam CT (CBCT) systems including angiographic imaging systems. The most important factor to consider when selecting an intraoperative imaging system is how it will fit into your current and future surgical workflows. We’d be happy to answer your questions about which type of intraoperative scanner could be right for your hospital. Please reach out to us.

CBCT (cone-beam computed tomography) is a technology similar to the traditional CT (computed tomography) except the X-Ray beam is projected in the shape of a cone and can cover large scan areas of the patient in a single rotation. The cone shaped beam of Loop-X can be manipulated to spare surrounding tissue from unnecessary radiation.

A portable CT scanner will allow you to be more flexible in choosing where you use the system and how you position it in the O.R. Some mobile CT / CBCT scanners offer a wide range of motion and could also benefit your workflow in terms of patient positioning and image acquisition. As a mobile imaging robot, Loop-X is designed for easy mobility and can be moved from room to room. Please reach out to us to discuss what options may be right for your operating room.

The high quality images obtained from an intraoperative CT / CBCT can be used in combination with a navigation system. The intraoperatively acquired scans are loaded into the navigation software and instruments can be used to plan trajectories and even insert screws for most common spine procedures. It is also possible to fuse preoperative CT images to intraoperative images and increase the amount of patient data you bring into the O.R. To learn more about image fusion, please read our article How Image Fusion Supports Surgical Navigation.
