O-Arm Surgical Imaging System

In the modern operating room, intra-operative imaging is a vital tool for the surgical team striving for the best patient outcomes. The O-arm intra-operative imaging system can be used before, during and after surgery and brings intra-operative imaging to a new level.  The O-arm surgical imaging system can:

  • Deliver simple and fast access to real-time, multi-plane 3D images (as well as 2D images) when the surgeons need them most
  • Improve safety for the surgeon and staff
  • Provide confidence in the achievement of surgical goals and hardware therapy placement, potentially eliminating revision surgeries
  • Offer improved visualization which allows surgeons to complete complex and minimally invasive procedures with ease.

The unique combination of the O-arm intra-operative imaging system with Stealth Station Navigation offers a one company solution for all your spinal procedural needs. From initial image through hardware therapy placement to pre-closure scan, Medtronic is your OR partner of choice
