BrainLAB introduces new image-guided surgery navigation platform

BrainLAB : 23 September, 2008  (New Product)
BrainLAB has introduced the company's latest image-guided surgery innovation, VectorVision flex, a small, ergonomic navigation platform coupled with an additional large, high-resolution display.
VectorVision flex offers adaptability to meet the needs of today's busy operating room (OR), featuring navigation controls available from the surgical field with the mobile platform or from the wall-mounted, multi-touch Digital Lightbox display. VectorVision flex works with the hospital's existing network, for instant access to patient data.

'VectorVision flex presents maximum flexibility in the areas of modularity, connectivity and expandability,' said Stefan Vilsmeier, president and chief executive officer, BrainLAB. 'We're elevating Image-Guided Surgery with a navigation platform that is both efficient and cost effective for the hospital.'

Developed with flexibility in mind, VectorVision flex offers components that can be used independently or integrated with one another to address the hospital's needs. Navigation can be conducted from within or outside of the sterile field; intra-operative imaging capabilities can be expanded with ultrasound, C-arm, iMRI and iCT integration; and collaboration and utilisation can be enhanced through iPlan Net remote treatment planning and additional network connected Digital Lightbox units installed throughout the hospital.

Digital Lightbox offers an additional 30inch high-resolution display with an intuitive, multi-touch interface allowing access to patient images and surgical planning tools for manipulation of patient data pre-, intra- and post-operatively. PACS (Picture Archiving and Communications System) functionality is offered via the DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) Query/Retrieve and can be accessed through both the navigation platform and Digital Lightbox. Data is also easily transferred via CD/DVD/USB devices.

The VectorVision flex platform's space-saving design features a small footprint camera stand that can be separated or docked and dual network connections that eliminate cumbersome cords in the OR.
