Surgical Theater Presents SynchronizAR™ – AR Experience for Neurosurgery
Surgical Theater will be exhibiting at the Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS) Annual Meeting in Houston, TX, from October 6-10, 2018, booth #1911. CNS provides Neurosurgeons with a great opportunity to experience Surgical Theater’s vision for bringing mixed reality into the Operating Room for Neurosurgery.
SynchronizAR™ provides neurosurgeons a comprehensive, patient-specific Precision VR® reconstruction, which aligns and synchronizes with their live optical image. Beyond simple hand-drawn outlines of pathology as seen with standard surgical navigation systems, SynchronizAR™ facilitates comprehensive mixed reality, offering surgeons live and synchronized augmentation including patient-specific vascular structures, pathology, and DTI white matter tracks aligned to their surgical field of view.
“Surgical Theater is very excited to showcase SynchronizAR™ to the Neurosurgical community. This new technology provides ergonomic visualization of critical case data without changing operative methods, equipment, or shifting focus from the operative field,” said Moty Avisar, CEO & Co-Founder of Surgical Theater. “We are revolutionizing the way surgeries are performed in neurosurgery and providing surgeons with enhanced utility of key operative technologies from microscopy navigation through the incorporation of our mixed reality technology.”
Dr. Robert Louis, Neurosurgeon and Program Director of the Skull Base and Pituitary Tumor Program at Hoag Hospital, will demonstrate the use of the Precision VR® platform for Patient Engagement, Surgical Planning, and Surgical Theater’s mixed reality technology SynchronizAR™ during in-booth presentations on October 8th and 9th from 10:00AM – 10:30AM & from 2:00PM – 2:30PM.
Surgical Theater is also pleased to announce a partnership with NEUROSURGERY® Publications to bring virtual reality to Operative Neurosurgery. Under this partnership, a select number of surgeons who submit Surgical Videos to the journal will be invited to have their case transformed by Surgical Theater into a 360° virtual reality fly-through video.
About Surgical Theater
Surgical Theater, the market leader in virtual and augmented reality healthcare services, is the first to combine cutting-edge fighter jet flight simulation technology with a patient’s own anatomy scans. Rendered from comprehensive combined modalities of CT, MRI as well as advanced post processing images such as DTI and BOLD, the 360° virtual reality fly-through is designed to allow surgeons to walk and fly-through a reconstruction of the patient’s own anatomy and pathology. Surgeons literally walk in the space between the white matter tracks and the tumor, being fully immersed, gaining unprecedented situational awareness and clarity of assessment. By simply turning their head, the surgeon can further explore the anatomy and plan the craniotomy, surgical path, trajectory, corridor, and the entire surgical strategy.
