This could bring major improvements in a field in which complex movement of anatomy often makes the preoperatively acquired 3D images outdated

“Most computer assisted intervention solutions use pre-operative 3D data and/or intra-operative 2D imaging. nView medical aims at providing intraoperative low-dose 3D imaging allowing surgeons to more frequently rely on intraoperative 3D imaging. This could bring major improvements in a field in which complex movement of anatomy often makes the preoperatively acquired 3D images outdated. We are happy to work closely with nView medical to enhance their user interface with our know-how and expertise in computer assisted surgery and augmented reality.” said Nassir Navab, PhD., Research Professor at the Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics.
Cristian Atria, Founder and CEO of nView medical highlighted the nView-Johns Hopkins collaboration as follows: “We have been working with Johns Hopkins researchers since 2016, and we are thrilled to expand our collaboration to include new technologies, such as AR and robotics integration. I’ve been impressed by how technology and medicine blend here at Johns Hopkins, and we are very excited to see medical research spur from our collaborative work.”
“nView system has the potential to improve surgical navigation for certain orthopaedic interventions, specifically its integration with medical robotic technology may prove to be fruitful.”, said Professor Mehran Armand, PhD, Principal Scientist and Director of Biomechanical and Image-Guided Surgical Systems Laboratory.
nView medical develops AI-based imaging technology that delivers instant 3D images. The use of this technology promises to bring increased safety and accuracy to surgical procedures. The nView imaging system is not cleared for human use. The nView-Johns Hopkins collaboration stems from research funded by the National Science Foundation (grant #1456352).
