The interdisciplinary navigation platform Scopis Hybrid Navigation unifes optical and electromagnetic measurement technologies into one system.
In this way, the Scopis Hybrid Navigation System enables surgeons to decide on the basis of indications which technology suits the particular procedure better and gives it the best possible support. With the Hybrid Patient Tracker it is possible to use both technologies simultaneously in the course of one procedure.
Both the optical and the electromagnetic technologies offer continuous endoscope navigation with the augmented reality function. This makes planning data directly visible on the endoscope image. Target Guided Surgery (TGS) ensures safe and quick navigation to anatomic targets. Deviations from the path and approaches to critical anatomic structures are signaled acoustically and visually.
Compared to conventional navigation systems, the Scopis Hybrid Navigation System and its AR feature offer a new solution for existing clinical problems.
Scopis lets you choose the system configuration that suits your needs best.
You can start with your favorite technology and later on you can upgrade to Hybrid Navigation at any time.
With Scopis Navigation Systems you can fit every need. There are almost no limits to the configuration possibilities. From the smallest ORs to highly complicated hospital integrations and everything in between. Scopis Monitor Configurations start at one 21" HD touch screen monitor and go up to four HD monitors with up to 55" each.
Electromagnetic navigation is mostly used in ENT and CMF surgery.
A field generator emits an electromagnetic field wherein the position of small sensors can be tracked. The field generator can be positioned beside the patient or can be integrated in the head rest. No direct line of sight is needed to navigate with an EM system.
Scopis positions a sensor in the tip of each electromagnetic instrument. The instrument shape can be manually adjusted by the surgeon without the need for further calibration.
The flexibility of the instruments is especially useful to reach areas like the frontal or maxillary sinus, which are difficult to reach with straight rigid instruments.
The sensor in a suction tube is located externally to aid the ﬂow and reduce clogging.
In addition to precalibrated Scopis instruments, the adapter system allows navigation of a variety of typical FESS instruments to be used for navigation.
The high precision of optical navigation and the possibility to navigate with metal objects in the area of interest make this technology predestined for cranial and spinal surgery.
A 3D infrared camera tracks the instruments which don't need any cables attached.
Scopis offers Ultrasound, C-arm and Microscope integration of most manufacturers.
In addition to precalibrated Scopis Instruments, the adapter system allows navigation of a variety of conventional instruments like drill guides, chisels and biopsy needles.
Scopis Hybrid Navigation enables you, the surgeon, to use both tracking technologies simultaneously. You benefit from the best of both worlds.
All you need is a hybrid tracker and a hybrid navigation unit. All other instruments can be used as usual, even EM and optical side-by-side.
Further, you always have the option to use one of the technologies. A hospital could get a hybrid navigation system, for example, that is shared by neuro and ENT. Each surgeon could then use their favorite technology.
