Ziehm Imaging and BrainLAB Improve Intra-Operative Imaging With Navigation

for More Gentle, Less Invasive Surgery

NUREMBERG and MUNICH, Germany, October 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Ziehm Imaging and BrainLAB have developed the Ziehm NaviPort 3D interface, representing an important step forward in x-ray based navigation for spinal and trauma surgery. The two German medical device manufacturers have been working together on the integration of 3D C-arms and surgical navigation for optimized intra-operative imaging. The new interface brings together the mobile 3D C-arms from Ziehm Imaging and the computer-assisted Fluoro-3D-navigation from BrainLAB. Thanks to this, surgical operations can become more precise and faster. Patients benefit from less invasive treatment and a reduced exposure dose. This solution is extremely versatile within a clinical environment. Its operative range includes orthopaedic, trauma, spinal and craniomaxillofacial surgery. The NaviPort 3D is immediately available.

With the introduction of Ziehm NaviPort 3D, Ziehm Imaging has brought forth a connection to the BrainLAB navigation systems with automatic registration for image converter-supported surgery. Physicians are able to effectively combine the innovative C-arm Ziehm Vision Vario 3D (Image intensifier version) with mobile navigation systems from BrainLAB and thereby benefit from better orientation during surgery.

The combination of the two technologies replaces the need for a post-operative CT scan, and therefore also reduces the exposure dose. By using the BrainLAB navigation software, surgeons can create extensive intra-operative 3D images. The picture quality and resolution of the x-ray is able to change according to varying indications. The surgeons receive improved picture information, which allows them to operate in the least invasive way possible.

The BrainLAB navigation software permits the automatic recognition of the intra-operatively obta
