Orthopedic and trauma surgery

Take image-guided surgery to a new level

Minimally invasive procedures are also becoming more and more commonplace in orthopedic and trauma surgery. This is partly due to cost pressures and time constraints, but primarily in an effort to minimize tissue damage and improve patient recovery time.

Advanced imaging tools like the Artis zeego offer surgeons ideal support for advanced cases. 3D imaging provides excellent support for delicate placement tasks, reduces the rate of second interventions, and has revolutionized the entire workflow. The use of navigation in spine surgery can increase the precision of procedures while also saving time and dose.

With Large volume syngo DynaCT the entire pelvis can be visualized intraoperatively. High spatial resolution shows even intraarticular fractures or tiny bone fractures. If vascular damage is associated with the fracture, it can be detected and treated at the same time. With this large field of view, radiation dose for both patient and staff can be reduced, as fewer images are necessary. This supports image-guided surgery and confident decision making by seeing the target region in one overview image.

Soft-tissue tumors are often better visualized in pre-operative MR or CT data. Fusion imaging with syngo 3D Roadmap can add valuable information for the treatment of tumor patients. Preoperative MR or CT data can be fused with syngo DynaCT intraoperatively. The 3D data can then be either overlaid onto live fluoroscopy or transferred to a navigation system. This supports precise tumor resection, sparing healthy tissue and avoiding crucial anatomy like vessels for precise and confident patient care.

Patient repositioning between different imaging modalities (e.g. CT and hybrid OR) is risky and time-consuming. When placing the patient directly on the OR table as soon as he/she enters the hospital, it is possible to transfer him/her to the CT for a trauma scan, or if hemodynamically unstable, straight to the hybrid OR for immediate open or endovascular care without repositioning. CT sliding gantry and Artis zeego in combination with a surgical table enables this quick patient diagnosis and treatment. The flexibility of the Artis zeego allows different trauma teams to take care of the patient at the same time. This Siemens-unique solution decreases risks due to repositioning and saves valuable minutes for trauma patients.
