The high-resolution 3D data set is transferred seamlessly from the C-arm by way of the Ziehm NaviPort to the navigation or robotic guidance system. Intraoperatively obtained image data aligns automatically with the patient’s anatomy and eliminates the need to register the 3D data record. The fusion of 3D imaging and image-guided capabilities allows for less invasive approaches, reduces the need for revision surgeries and postoperative CT scans, and leads to a boost in decision-making confidence within the OR.1,2,3
Ziehm NaviPort can be connected to several navigation and robotic guidance systems like Brainlab, Stryker, Scopis and Globus Medical.
