Surgical precision through industry-first hybrid technology

Accurate surgical navigation in spinal surgeries 

 

When performing delicate spinal surgery, a surgeon’s accuracy is paramount to achieving the best outcome for the patient. Conventional surgical navigation systems are invasive and often imprecise. Surgeons are required to clearly visualize small and narrow pedicles in challenging anatomies, while cone-beam CT radiation exposure is a concern for both patients and staff during the procedure. 

Imaging and augmented reality (AR) navigation in one system 

 

ClarifEye is an industry-first solution that combines imaging and augmented reality (AR) navigation in one system. It uses an intraoperative scan to create a high-resolution 3D model with automatic spine segmentation to support precise selection, planning and navigation of devices without X-ray. Four high-resolution cameras automatically detect the non-invasive patient markers to augment the surgical field, and the live video images are overlaid on 3D cone-beam CT. The system visualizes the tip of the ClarifEye Needle as it is navigated along the planned path on the spinal anatomy, automatically tracking the position of non-invasive skin markers in relation to anatomy and adjusting the 3D image to support accuracy.

 

Compared to conventional surgical navigation systems, ClarifEye enables a streamlined surgical workflow as no manual registration or invasive reference frame is required.
