Brainlab and Magic Leap Partner in Digital Surgery

Exclusive collaboration introduces spatial computing to a broad range of medical procedures

Brainlab and Magic Leap Partner in Digital Surgery

September 28, 2018 — Brainlab announced a strategic development partnership with Florida-based Magic Leap, a developer of proprietary spatial computing solutions, to market a version of Magic Leap’s technology platform to help surgeons and other clinicians visualize and access medical imaging data.

The state-of-the-art operating system will combine Brainlab data management, cloud computing, visualization and data pre-processing software with Magic Leap’s spatial computing and experiential platforms. The platform will be open to third parties interested in developing medical spatial computing applications in the fields of surgery, radiotherapy and other critical medical interventions.

This spatial computing development ecosystem will support management, visualization, augmentation and navigation of diagnostic imaging data for a broad range of clinical procedures. The first release will enable planning and simulation of interventional procedures in an office setting. This will be expanded upon quickly to include a next-generation mix of virtual and physical worlds for the operating room, radiotherapy treatment room, intensive care room and radiology suite.

(a) Cardiac MRI perfusion shows perfusion deficit of anterior/anterolateral wall attributed to left anterior descending artery/left circumflex artery (*). (b) CT coronary angiography. (c) Coronary angiography, left anterior oblique projection with caudal angulation. (d) Three-dimensional image fusion helped refine diagnosis: perfusion deficits (*) were most likely caused by narrow first diagonal branch and its first, stented side branch.

Carestream’s X-ray digital tomosynthesis functionality creates three-dimensional datasets from digital radiography (DR) that can be scrolled through similar to computed tomography (CT) imaging. It received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in January 2020. Digital tomosynthesis uses a single sweep of X-ray exposures and streamlines operator workflow by separating the process of DT exposure acquisition from image volume formation.
