University hospital Klinikum rechts der Isar in Germany has deployed Brainlab’s Curve image-guided surgery system.

Curve is an advanced navigation system that integrates the Brainlab’s proprietary software to allow instantaneous 3D visualisation during surgery.

A streaming option enables surgeons to transfer live images to a PC outside the operating room, thus allowing other experts to view surgery as it happens.

The open architecture of the system also allows the exchange between clinical users so that patients are able to benefit from their combined medical skills.

Brainlab’s clinical online network Quentry supports safe and fast sharing of patient data with colleagues around the world through cloud computing.

The system also features a motorised camera that can be adjusted at any point during the intervention using steering buttons on the monitor.

Eight multidirectional wheels with cable deflectors allow medical staff to move the Curve system in and out of the operating room as per the requirement.

Brainlab CEO and president Stefan Vilsmeier said that the new navigation platform connects the operating room to the outside world.

"When we started developing Curve, we set ourselves the goal to overcome the barriers of traditional navigation in the operating room," Vilsmeier said.

Klinikum rechts der Isar neurosurgery department chairman Bernhard Meyer said the Curve is user-friendly and offers tools that will help improve outcomes for our patients.

"Having ultra-fast access to updated images in the operating room allows us to make informed decisions on-the-spot and best-possible intra-operative control," Meyer said.
