NeuroLogica Announces Integration with Medtronic Surgical Navigation Solutions

Integration to improve surgical outcomes and accuracy

July 20, 2012 — NeuroLogica is pleased to announce the integration of NeuroLogica’s portable BodyTom 32-slice CT (computed tomography) scanner with Medtronic’s StealthStation S7 surgical navigation system.

This collaboration enables NeuroLogica’s portable BodyTom CT scanner and Medtronic’s StealthStation surgical navigation system to be used in cranial neurosurgery procedures through the use of Medtronic’s automatic intraoperative registration (StealthAiR) technology. StealthAiR is a fully automatic, universally compatible, patient registration process for sites using intraoperative CT scanners and navigation.

"NeuroLogica is pleased to announce this integration with Medtronic's StealthStation,” said Eric Bailey, president and CEO of NeuroLogica. “As intraoperative imaging becomes a staple in the OR [operating room], the integration between BodyTom and StealthStation with StealthAiR will serve to enhance patient outcomes and stretch the limits of what was previously thought possible in complex neurosurgical cases."

NeuroLogica’s BodyTom is a completely portable, full body, 32-slice CT that boasts an 85 cm gantry and 60 cm field of view (FOV). The battery-powered scanner can be transported from room to room, and is DICOM (digital imaging and communications in medicine) 3.1 compliant and compatible with all PACS (picture archiving and communications systems), surgical navigation, EMRs (electronic medical records) and planning systems.
