Airo in Neurosurgery

CT data sets are consistently used in Neurosurgical applications including intracranial and spine surgery. Often, these data sets are sent to a navigation system using the DICOM communications protocol enabling precise, minimally invasive image guided procedures.

Airo enhances the precision of neuro-navigation by providing near real-time intraoperative imaging whenever it is required during a procedure. Brain shift during intracranial surgery and anatomical movement in spine surgery during hardware placement can reduce the accuracy of navigation systems. Airo intraoperative CT updates the image sets used for navigation, helping to maintain overall surgical accuracy.

Benefits in Neurosurgery

Portability. Airo’s self propelled transport mode and forward facing camera means the system can easily be moved into and out of the operating room. It can also be moved between OR suites with little effort. Airo plugs into a standard wall power outlet.

 

Largest inner bore (107cm). Airo’s inner bore accommodates large patients and instrumentation during intraoperative imaging.

 

Compatibility with surgical navigation systems. Airo provides near real time updates for image guided surgery and can be used with any surgical navigation system that accepts sending CT image sets over a DICOM protocol.

 

Confirmatory CT scan. In-OR imaging enables confirmatory imaging showing hardware placement before closing. This can eliminate the need to transport the patient to Radiology and may help reduce surgical revision rates.
