Mobile intraoperative system designed to bring flexibility to any surgical procedure

Brainlab Introduces Loop-X Mobile Intraoperative Imaging Robot

September 26, 2019 — Digital medical technology company Brainlab unveiled Loop-X, which it calls the first mobile intraoperative imaging robot, at the 2019 North American Spine Society annual meeting (NASS 2019), Sept. 25-28 in Chicago.

The Loop-X robotic architecture introduces a new standard in flexibility, according to Brainlab, adding additional degrees of freedom to any surgical procedure: By automating imaging workflow steps and robotically moving with the procedure and on command, the system is in sync with other devices like robotic arms and with the surgeon and staff. Brainlab said the non-isocentric movement and collimation capabilities allow for the imaging of structures that are much larger — for example in diameter — and much smaller — reducing radiation exposure — than what is possible with the typical computed tomography (CT) scanner or 3-D C-arm. The highly integrated device is designed for 2-D and 3-D imaging, combining ultra-high resolution with extra-low doses, and proprietary technology to image with interlaced energies for soft-tissue visualization. Loop-X imaging robot can be integrated with Brainlab technology as well as third-party products through an open interface, maximizing interoperability and data integration.

Part of the overarching Brainlab Digital Surgery portfolio, the Loop-X imaging robot supports a broad range of surgical applications. Beyond diagnostic imaging, the intelligent device can capture partial information, digitizing anatomical intraoperative changes in order to update a “digital model” of the patient previously generated by aggregating pre-operative images.

The Loop-X imaging robot has been developed by medPhoton in close partnership with Brainlab. Brainlab has co-funded development, strategically invested in the Salzburg, Germany-based company, and become the exclusive distributor of the Loop-X imaging robot in surgery.
