Virtual Surgery Intelligence (VSI) for surgeons.

The VSI is designed to help surgeons before, during and after an operation.

VSI is a smart solution using artificial intelligence. It displays MRI and CT images in 3D inside a Mixed/Augmented Reality headset. These images are generated from the original CT or MRI scans. The VSI creates a comprehensive representation, including all anatomical structures, which can be moved around effortlessly in the user’s field of vision.

Using anatomical reference points, the VSI recognizes the individual patient and fixes the 3D scans permanently to the surgical site. The surgeon can then remove superfluous layers and structures and adapt the 3D images simultaneously, by using gesture and speech commands.

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
  • 3D images merge virtually with the patient
  • Cut and adapt the 3D images to your requirements
  • Control with gesture and speech commands

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
  • Write your operation report

Easy upload MRI & CT

Uploading and deleting MRI and CT images to and from the HoloLens is a very easy and fast process. We use the Azure CloudPlatform from Microsoft, which is safe and certified for hospitals, to upload the images.

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.
