Curve™ Image Guided Surgery
Curve™ Image Guided Surgery is a minimally invasive surgery that uses 3D imaging to view the critical structures in your brain. It helps your neurosurgeon visualize the movements of their surgical instruments as they compare to the 3D image obtained before surgery. These 3D images are shown on a touch screen monitor so your neurosurgeon can view nearly any angle of your anatomy.
Benefits of Curve™ Image Guided Surgery
With Curve™ Image Guided Surgery, your neurosurgeon can expertly plan your surgery and operate with precision all while being less invasive. Curve™ also reduces the risk of damage to fragile structures in the brain which helps preserve healthy tissue.
Your neurosurgeon can easily share your treatment plan with other doctors on your care team using Curve™ which makes it much easier for them to share and collaborate inside and outside of the operating room.
Similar to a GPS system, Curve™ is an advanced computer with touch screen monitors for viewing nearly any angle of your anatomy and has infrared cameras that track your exact position on the operating table relative to your neurosurgeon's instruments.
Airo® Mobile Intraoperative CT
Airo® creates diagnostic quality images and is designed as a mobile unit so it can be used in the operating room. This gives surgeons real-time anatomical information during surgery allowing for immediate, informed decision-making.
Airo® connects to the Curve™ Image Guided Surgery system which keeps the Curve™ 3D image up-to-date for the surgeon to better visualize the position of their instruments.
