Stryker and NeuroLogica have formed an exclusive partnership agreement in which Stryker will promote and sell NeuroLogica’s BodyTom portable full body CT scanner for the specialties of spinal surgery (among others forms of surgery) in conjunction with Stryker’s NAV3i surgical navigation platform. A press release reports that BodyTom is the world’s first portable, 32-slice full body CT scanner.
According to the press release, with an 85cm gantry and 60cm field of view, BodyTom produces high quality diagnostic images throughout the hospital, including in the operating theatre where it is frequently used to provide point-of-care imaging for surgical procedures. The scanner can be combined with surgical navigation to facilitate the guidance of surgical instruments relative to a patient’s anatomy, improving visualisation and precision during minimally invasive surgical interventions.
The agreement will enable Stryker, an industry leader in surgical navigation, and NeuroLogica, an industry leader in point-of-care imaging, to offer a turnkey surgical solution for customers seeking to acquire these innovative technologies.
“Stryker Navigation and NeuroLogica share a commitment to offering the most advanced technologies to assist surgeons in the operating theatre and deliver better outcomes for their patients,” said Derek Babin, director of Marketing for Stryker Navigation. “We are excited to partner with NeuroLogica to provide streamlined and integrated surgical solutions to our customers that will enhance the surgeon experience and simplify the purchasing process for hospitals.”
