The advantages of “FLASH™ Navigation” in detail
FLASH™ Navigation uses structured light to combine the camera image with a CT scan taken before the operation. The 3D image guidance with around 1,000,000 data points allows real-time correlation between the interaction of the surgical instrument and the CT images. This enables safe and precise work on the spine. In addition, the radiation exposure is eliminated and the fast registration reduces the operation time and therefore also the costs.
The device is operated intraoperatively by the surgeon using a foot pedal, so no additional personnel are required. In addition, the surgeon has full control over the process, can control the workflow himself and thus reduce valuable operating time. The planning is done before the operation. Intraoperative plan changes can be made quickly and easily by a non-sterile person.
