Airo TruCT 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 can help enhance the precision of neuro-navigation by providing near real-time intraoperative imaging 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 is designed to update the image sets used for navigation, which may improve navigation accuracy.
Potential benefits in Neurosurgery
Airo’s self propelled transport mode and forward facing camera mean the system can easily be moved into and out of the operating room (OR). 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 large inner bore provides patient positioning flexibility during treatment.
Compatibility with surgical navigation systems
Airo provides near real time updates and automatic registration with Stryker's CranialMap and SpineMap 3D navigation software systems. Airo can also be used with other surgical navigation systems that accept sending CT image sets via DICOM protocol.
Confirmatory CT scan
Intraoperative imaging enables confirmatory imaging showing hardware placement before closing. This can eliminate the need to transport the patient to Radiology.
