NeuroLogica recently declared that the images generated by BodyTom, a novel portable 32 slice CT scanner, was successfully validated for deployment with Mazor Robotics Renaissance surgical guidance robot.
Mazor Robotics Renaissance robot is capable of efficiently carrying out complex spinal procedures with increased precision. Unlike traditional surgical intervention, this robot requires only minimal radiation doses ensuring patients with fewer complications and improved safety. The surgeons can plan the procedure in a 3-D virtual environment using the images from a high quality pre-operative CT scan. This mapping will allow placing of screws and implants correctly. The images generated by NeuroLogica’s portable CT scanner BodyTom were found to be attuned with Mazor’s planning software.
According to the CEO of Mazor Robotics, Ori Hadomi, customers benefit from the Mazor’s Renaissance robot’s compatibility with some of the major imaging products. While using regular CT scanners for the planning, surgeons can also use intra-operative CTs like BodyTom that is attracting significant interest.
NeuroLogica’s BodyTom is a comprehensive full body 32 slice CT. This portable medical tool features an 85 cm gantry and 60 cm field of view. Powered by battery, the BodyTom can be easily transported between surgical rooms, thereby generating CT images of higher quality in the ICU, clinic, OR and Emergency/Trauma Department.
BodyTom has achieved DICOM 3.1 compliance and can be adopted for effective use with any surgical navigation, PACS, electronic medical records and planning systems, and surgical robots.
