January 8, 2014 — Stryker Corp., a medical technology company, and NeuroLogica, a medical imaging company and subsidiary of Samsung Electronics America Inc., announced an exclusive partnership agreement in which Stryker will promote and sell NeuroLogica's BodyTom portable full body computed tomography (CT) scanner for the specialties of neurosurgery, spine surgery, orthopaedic surgery and trauma surgery in conjunction with the Stryker NAV3i Surgical Navigation Platform.
 
BodyTom is the world's first portable, 32-slice full body CT scanner. With an 85-cm gantry and 60-cm field of view, BodyTom produces high quality diagnostic images throughout the hospital, including in the operating theater, where it is frequently used to provide point-of-care imaging for surgical procedures. BodyTom can be combined with surgical navigation, also known as image-guided surgery, to facilitate the guidance of surgical instruments relative to a patient's anatomy, improving visualization and precision during minimally invasive surgical interventions.
 
The agreement will enable Stryker and NeuroLogica to offer a turnkey surgical solution for customers seeking to acquire these innovative technologies.
 
"The integration of Stryker Navigation with the BodyTom CT scanner is really very exciting," said Johnny Delashaw, M.D., Swedish Neuroscience Institute, Seattle. "The opportunity here is to be more accurate when we place our hardware in the spine and then reconfirm that our hardware is in a great position before we ever leave the room."
 
With Stryker's support in serving customers in neurosurgery, spine surgery, orthopaedic surgery and trauma surgery, NeuroLogica will turn its focus on the development of new markets and clinical applications for BodyTom along with their other portable imaging solutions, CereTom and inSPira HD.
