Mazor Robotics is dedicated to the development and marketing of innovative surgical robots and complementing products that optimize patient outcomes and provide a safer surgical environment for patients, surgeons and operating room staff. Mazor’s pipeline includes innovative products that reshape the way surgeons perform surgery.
To enhance its product offering, Mazor sought after a viable solution to develop and market an add-on to existing C-Arm technology (ubiquitous operating room imaging systems), whereby 2D scans could be easily converted to rotatable 3D images intra-operatively. This new technology would enable CT (computer tomography) scanning to be performed in the operating room, complying with these requirements:
Mazor Robotics partnered with RTC Vision to develop C-InSight ®, a new and innovative product approved by the CE and FDA, transforms standard X-ray equipment already in the operating room (e.g., mobile C-Arm), into a CT machine that can reconstruct a patient’s organs during surgery.
Based on RTC Vision’s sophisticated algorithms, the C-InSight workstation generates high image quality with minimal artifacts by implants, providing slice-by-slice views of intra-articular surfaces. Further, C-InSight provides 3D images at radiation exposure levels as low as 5-10% when compared to other intraoperative 3D scans, making the procedure safer for both the surgeon and the patient, often eliminating the need for a postoperative CT scan.
Easy and intuitive, C-InSight quickly connects to any C-Arm with a video output (via BNC cable) and converts 2D scans to 3D images in just two minutes. C-InSight is both affordable and cost-effective, making 3D scanning available to any medical facility, and helping to improve surgical outcomes and patient satisfaction.
