Intra-Operative Angiography, IGS Integrated for More Precise Surgeries

May 1, 2008 – Royal Philips Electronics and BrainLAB said they would be collaborating on the integration of intra-operative angiography and image-guided surgery (IGS).

The integration of angiography and IGS would provide surgeons with real-time information during interventions that may lead to more precise surgical procedures.

Image-guided intra-operative angiography could enhance both neurosurgery and spinal surgery and will extend the classical application range of cardiovascular surgery.

As part of the intended cooperation, BrainLAB will develop interfaces between Philips’ angiographic imaging systems and the BrainLAB VectorVision system for the automatic registration of intra-operatively acquired angiographic data.

This means surgeons will be able to upload datasets into the IGS system without the need for additional manual steps. During surgery, the position of the patient and surgical instruments is tracked in real time through BrainLAB software.
