New Machine-Vision Image Guided Surgery (MIGS™) Uses 3D Optical Technologies

Toronto-based 7D Surgical introduced Machine-Vision Image Guided 7D Surgical navigation system (MIGS™) for spinal procedures.

The company also announced that it has received FDA 510 (k) and Health Canada clearance for its (MIGS™). It uses 3D optical technologies that require only natural light, as well as machine vision algorithms.

This surgical navigation system is touted as eliminating barriers to adoption for existing surgical navigation platforms and can help speed up surgical workflow for spinal procedures.

7D Surgical’s new MIGS system provides a faster, radiation-free alternative to existing options. It also reduces the overall cost and footprint required to navigate the spine. It could be an important tool in expanding the use of IGS in spine procedures.

The system’s navigation technology is embedded in an overhead surgical light to reduce line of sight issues, and is controlled by the surgeon using a foot pedal to eliminate the need for non-sterile personnel for operation.

7D Surgical’s MIGS system provides surgeons and their hospitals with a superior product option. It enables near-instantaneous Flash Registration™ of the patient’s anatomy.
