Brainlab Collaborates with Toshiba on Integrated Surgical Suite

June 22, 2010 – Brainlab AG announced last week that it has signed an agreement with Toshiba Medical Systems Corporation Inc. to integrate its Aquilion LB Computed Tomography (CT) scanner with the Brainlab Brainsuite iCT digitally integrated operating room (OR).

Brainsuite iCT integrates intraoperative CT scans with surgical planning and ceiling-mounted navigation. Automatic Image Registration uses the latest intraoperative images to ensure fast and sterile patient registration for uninterrupted navigation back at original accuracy. Up-to-date images combined with navigation provide surgeons with immediate quality control and the ability to check their progress before concluding surgery. Intraoperative CT is considered to be a versatile tool for multiple surgical specialties. Because the scanner can be used for surgical and diagnostic imaging, it is considered a financially feasible solution for hospitals worldwide.

The 16-slice Aquilion LB features the industry’s largest gantry aperture of 90 cm and the industry's largest scan field of 70 cm, covering more anatomy.

The unique 70 cm scan field, up to 40 percent greater than other large-bore CT systems, delivers detailed image quality and reduces hidden anatomical areas for diagnoses, simulation and planning. The Aquilion LB delivers a field-of-view of 70 cm without requiring extrapolation algorithms through Toshiba's Quantum Detector technology.
