The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared Synaptive Medical's BrightMatter Guide a neurological navigation system.
The device allows for intuitive integration of pre-operative and post-operative brain imaging scans with the surgical tools being used to access remote regions of the organ.
Using diffusion tensor imaging data, the BrightMatter Guide system provides a detailed look at the brain's internal structure.
The system displays 3D tractographic visuals of the brain to know the exact location and orientation of the tools being used. The visuals overlays the anatomical scan of the brain and guide the surgeons to visualize the brain's internal networks.
The product enables the surgeons to navigate their tools throughout a surgery procedure while avoiding unnecessary damage to connected structures on the way.
Cameron Piron, President of Synaptive Medical, said, "BrightMatter Guide is a GPS of sorts for the brain, giving surgeons a visual representation of the complex structures and associated tractography of the brain in the operating room, where they need them."
The BrightMatter Guide when it is interfaced with other technologies of Synaptive's like BrightMatter Vision and BrightMatter Drive, forms a compelling solution in the operating room called the Servo.
