Putting Your Enterprise Imaging Strategy in Place:

8 Tips for Selecting the Right Transformation Partner. As the healthcare industry moves toward a more personalized, value-based care model, choosing the right solution partner to obtain a truly transformational enterprise imaging strategy is paramount.



“Scopis’ holographic solution has the potential to make spine surgery more effective, safe, and precise,” Christian Woiciechowsky, chief of the Spinal Surgery Clinic at Vivantes Humboldt Hospital in Berlin, said in a statement. “Integrating mixed-reality tools into surgery is a huge technological advancement toward enhancing a surgeon’s vision and may provide greater benefits to patients.”

During multiple vertebrae fixation surgeries, the surgeons wear the Microsoft HoloLens glasses, which communicate wirelessly to the navigation platform. The surgeons see a mixed reality overlay of the planned positioning of the pedicle screws on the patient.

With the platform, the surgeons are also able to use hand gestures to move virtual monitors into their field of view near the patient. That way, they don’t have to take their eyes off of the operative field.



The current standard for planning screw replacement positioning involves fluoroscopy, which exposes patients to radiation that can be avoided with the mixed-reality system. Since the platform can help surgeons align the pedicle screws more precisely, that also means better surgical outcomes and shorter hospital stays.

The Holographic Navigation Platform can also be used during other procedures that require the highest levels of precision and speed. In neurosurgical procedures, for example, brain tumor can be located faster with greater accuracy.

Scopis is based in Germany and is a developer of medical augmented reality, mixed reality and hybrid navigation systems. Those technologies are used for surgical education and planning, and navigation systems for otorhinolaryngology, craniomaxillofacial, neuro- and spine surgery, and bronchoscopy.

To date, surgeons in over 50 countries have performed more than 10,000 surgeries with the assistance of Scopis’ products.
