O-ARM™ SURGICAL IMAGING SYSTEM

O-ARM™ SURGICAL IMAGING SYSTEM

 

This state-of-the-arts system incorporates O-ARM imaging technology to perform spinal scans and turn the results into 2D and 3D images in real time. The computer-aided navigation system helps pinpoint the target locations and allows surgeons to track the fixation instruments in relation to the anatomy of the patient’s spine, especially their proximity to nerves and the spinal cord. With locations, dimensions and distances precisely determined, surgeons are able work nimbly and efficiently.

 

O-ARM™ SURGICAL IMAGING SYSTEM
Helps reduce the chance of treatment complications and allows faster patient recovery.

 

“Helps reduce risk for patients. Real-time precision imaging.
Smaller incisions equal shorter recovery time.”

Highlights

 

  • Ensures accurate pinpointing of the target points and precise instrument tracking.
  • Enables more wide-angle, comprehensive imaging, leading to decreased patient radiation exposure compared to C-arm.
  • High-quality imaging data help ensure accurate instrument placements and avoid areas of risk, reducing complications involving nerves and spinal cord.

Suitability

 

  • Suitable for patients with spine conditions, especially scoliosis patients requiring metal implants and patients with spinal cord symptoms or a herniated disc.
  • Suitable for patients with orthopaedic trauma (injury to bones, ligament and joints) sustained in an accident.

Computer-aided (O-ARM) X-ray system turns results into 2D and 3D images in real time. These data are used to accurately map out surgical coordinates with precise details including locations, sizes and distances from anatomical landmarks. Working in concert with the navigation system, it helps surgeons to perform their work deftly and efficiently.

 

O-ARM™ SURGICAL IMAGING SYSTEM is ideal for spine surgery. The main system controls the display signals on the navigation instrument, allowing the surgical team to pinpoint coordinates on the patient’s anatomy on the display screen to help in decision-making and enhance treatment safety. High-fidelity imaging display is another one of the system’s advantages.

Doctors know the exact positions of the implanted instruments in relation to the spine and can ascertain even more precisely how close they are to nerves and the spinal cord. Moreover, surgeons can perform an X-ray right in the operating room, doing away with the need to move the patient to Radiology for an X-ray and then back to the OR. The tracking camera allows efficient pre-operative mapping out of target locations, which is especially crucial in patients with spine deformity. Using the system helps reduce risks for patients, especially the risk of paralysis which can occur in naked-eye surgery. It also helps increase efficiency of procedures such as the insertion of pedicle screws.

 

Just as importantly, the system can be used in minimally invasive surgery (MIS). The navigation system enables surgeons to know exactly where to operate, eliminating the need to perform large incisions. In a crucial procedure like metal implantation in the spine, surgeons are able to track their instruments and perform the procedure with precision. And because the incisions are smaller, patient recovery takes less time.
