Neurosurgery

Airo TruCT for Neurosurgery is the largest inner bore, mobile intraoperative CT imaging system that seamlessly integrates into an OR environment. It is designed to optimize intraoperative imaging for cranial and spinal procedures including those performed with surgical navigation.


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

 


Portability

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.

 

  

 

  

 

 

Airo TruCT is designed to provide the diagnostic image quality you need with the flexibility that the OR demands. Airo TruCT features a 32 slice detector and fan beam CT imaging. Other cone beam 3D image devices rely on CT-like reconstruction and do not utilize Hounsfield Unit based imaging to visualize soft tissue and delicate anatomical structures.
