The Rouen University Hospital is equipped with innovative equipment: the “neurosurgeon’s GPS”
By Adrian Filoche
Qualified for “GPS of the neurosurgeon”the O-ARM O2 is an innovative and efficient piece of equipment which was financed by the Métropole for the Rouen University Hospital. 491,580 euros were released for its acquisition. We present to you this new tool.
A step forward for the CHU
This latest generation 3D imaging C-arm includes a new neuro-navigation station, neuro-navigation engines, a robot (Rosa Brain) and an advanced video-management system (management of video sources, image wall, camera and microphone) for remote transmission.
Thanks to this acquisition, neurosurgery will have an efficient and productive environment making it possible to “develop its activity under conditions of safety and quality” and to increase the attractiveness for patients as well as for practitioners”, details the CHU in a press release.
Securing the surgeon’s gesture
This type of equipment is “particularly in demand to treat complex spinal pathologies requiring the placement of implants (fractures with spinal trauma, scoliosis, arthrodesis in particular)”, specifies the health establishment.
Coupled with the neuro-navigation system, the scanner thus makes it possible to secure the gesture of the practitioner and, “99%”, to position an implant “of the right size and in the right place”, all without damaging other structures (vessels of the neck, spinal cord, nerve roots, veins, arteries, lungs, heart, esophagus and trachea).
