Fully Integrated Optical Navigation Platform

Combining a surgical C-arm and an optical 2-D/3-D navigation unit into a common platform, Siemens and BrainLAB introduced NaviVision. This new system allows more room for the operating room (OR) team and helps to facilitate workflow.
It is the first integrated optical navigation platform with automatic recording for surgery that is supported by an image receptor. Siemens’ family of mobile C-arms and BrainLAB’s optical 2-D/3-D navigation unit are combined, minimizing the space requirements of two medical systems. This helps provide the operator with great freedom of action at the OR table.
The system’s adjustable swivel arm can be fully sterilized and set in the horizontal or vertical direction. Its navigation screen can be attached directly to the C-arm’s workstation or directly to the OR table to meet the surgeon’s needs. WIth a touchscreen, the surgeon can easily operate the system’s monitor and switch between axial or lateral views. And the DICOM interface allows for easy documentation of image data.
