Airo® TruCT®

Great procedures start with great imaging.
Airo TruCT supports the demanding requirements of intra-operative imaging in surgery. With fan beam CT technology at its core, Airo TruCT is designed to capture cutting-edge imaging in challenging anatomical locations.

When you see more, you can do more.

Features and benefits

  • Scan one full meter of the spine (up to 51.2 cm x 100 cm scan volume)in a single scan in as little as 43 seconds1
  • The Airo TruCT considers your patient’s unique anatomy. It is designed to deliver customized radiation and potentially minimize radiation exposure2
  • Expand your capabilities with a 107 cm diameter bore for patient scans and positioning
  • Support clinical decision-making with a 32-slice detector array providing details anatomical imagine for bony and soft tissue
  • High-resolution images uploaded intra-operatively to the Q GuidanceSystem with Spine Guidance Software

Scan mode

In scan mode, the base is lowered onto the ground by retracting the casters in the support base. The Ring is rotated 90 degrees perpendicular to the base. In scan mode, all functionality other than transport is available to the user, such as patient loading, system positioning, image acquisition, and image processing. The Pendant provides a user interface which enables viewing and manipulation of stored images from the patient database. Images can be archived to a USB digital storage media or pushed to a PACS or a navigation system through DICOM protocol.

Transport mode

In transport mode, the Ring is aligned with the base, and the entire system is powered from a battery pack located on the Ring. In this mode, Airo can be driven and positioned by the control Pendant attached to one side of the Gimbal. Moving the Airo typically requires only a single person even when taking the system up or down a ramp. However, a second person may act as a spotter in busy or crowded hallways. Once the Airo has been moved to the desired location (for storage or scanning), it is then plugged into a standard power outlet for recharging.
