We take the guesswork out of open brain surgery with a uniquely capable 3D Optical scanner and Computer Vision System.

Today, a patient's pre-operative MRI is used to track the surgeons tools within the brain during surgery.

The surgery begins by opening the cranium, which creates a change in pressure that causes the brain to change shape. Correcting for error introduced by this constant movement adds time and risk to every open brain surgery.

We eliminate the error, saving time, money
3D Optical Computer Vision System saves $3,000 per case for the hospital, 30 minutes for the surgeon, and speeds patient recovery.
