Holomedicine for surgery:
VSI-Virtual Surgery Intelligence

The holomedical application VSI has been designed to support surgeons during surgical interventions.

Your advantages:
  • Improved anatomical orientation
  • More precise diagnosis of pathology
  • Clear localization of fractures
  • View bone and soft tissue structures from all angles
  • Faster and safer operation planning
  • Future-proof through continuous upgrades
VSI Surgery functions:
  •  3D viewing of MRI/CT/SPECT images etc.
  • Virtual 3D surgery planning based on the original data
  • 3-D measurement and marking
  • Virtual movement, rotation, cutting and fixing of the 3D image in space
  • Visualization of fine tissue structures and fractures
  • Intraoperative comparison by merging the 3-D CT & MRI image with the patient

The VSI is an intelligent holomedical application. It presents MRI, CT, and SPECT images already 3 dimensionally in mixed reality glasses, which were previously generated from the original images. A completely anatomical image with all structures appears, which can be positioned freely in the room. Pathologies and fractures can be localized faster and more precisely.

Surgical planning: The physician can use the 3D images of his patient to plan the intraoperative procedure. Important structures, entrances, etc. can be drawn in virtually. Using a virtual scale, the smallest structures can be measured and displayed. The planning is stored and can be recalled during the procedure for optimal anatomical orientation.

Superimposed: The VSI recognizes the individual patient by appending landmarks and fixes the 3D planning exactly on the patient body. The control is completely non-contact and works through speech and gestures.

Learn different VSI use cases:

Preoperative
functions:

  • View CT and MRI images in 3D
  • Slide through all layers and anatomical structures
  • Prepare yourself for upcoming surgeries
  • Control with gesture and speech commands

Your Benefits:

  • Easy upload and fast construction of 3D MRI and CT images
  • View all layers and structures
  • Cut the 3D images with a cube, a sphere or peel them
  • Adapt contrast and brightness
  • Place the images in the room, wherever you need them
  • Show your colleagues

Intraoperative
functions:

  • VSI recognizes the patient and merge the 3D Images virtually with the patient
  • Telesurgery: Call your colleague from surgery room and show him what you see
  • Cut and adapt the 3D images to your requirements
  • Control with gesture and speech commands
Telechirurgie

Your benefits:

  • Improved anatomical orientation
  • No anatomical surprises
  • Time saving and quality assurance
  • Everything you need at a glance:
    • Patient data
    • Progression of disease
    • Real live connection to other doctors while operating

Postoperative
functions:

  • Follow up your surgery with 3D MRI and CT images
  • See the progression of the surgery
  • Make comparisons
  • Present to your colleagues

Add-On: VSI Streamer

VSI Streamer Box displays the ultrasound, microscope, endoscope, and laparoscope images along with others virtually in the VSI. If required, several views can be displayed simultaneously. More informations here.

Uploading MRT and CT Scans from your computer to the HoloLens glasses in the Mixed Reality world is so easy:

Several medical areas

The VSI provides several functionalities specialized to meet the requirements of the different surgical areas. To achieve the best results and to supply an excellent tool for your surgery, the experienced surgeons on our advisory board constantly help us improve these functionalities.

Neurosurgery

Neurosurgeons can dive into the 3-dimensional MRI head, peel it, and virtually lap it over the surgical site. In this way, even the smallest lesions can be recognized and surgically removed with a high degree of precision.

ENT

For surgeries in the ENT area, e.g. sinus surgery, a high-quality microscope is important.
To ‘slide’ through the 3D MRI images and cut the redundant parts, is another indispensable functionality.

Plastic surgery

The VSI allows precise transplantation of nerves or tendon rearrangements, especially in reconstructive surgery with the surgical restoration of lost body function and body shapes.

Epilepsy

Abnormal patterns of brain waves and brain structures which indicate epilepsy can only be identified on the MRI images. A clear advantage is provided by the overlap of the 3D MRI images with the surgical site.

Radiology

The 3D view of MRI and CT scans is an excellent tool for radiologists to diagnose a patient’s disease. The functionality to mark structures inside the images is of great value and helpful for further treatment.

Radiooncology

Precise localization of metastasis by the VSI eliminates the need for additional CTs and MRIs in diagnostic and interventional radiology.

Oral surgery

Precise localization while operating dental fixings, broken jawbones and wisdom teeth, as well as improved orientation when implanting artificial teeth by merging CT/MRI images with the surgical site.

Spine surgery

The 3-dimensional view of the spine generated from the original CT images of the patient, as well as the exact overlap of these via the vertebral bones, are a clear advantage in the detection of diseases, injuries, surgical and conventional therapeutic method.
