The newly opened Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Surgical Suite at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell has integrated Siemens Artis zeego system and the BrainLAB VectorVision navigation system with displays and other information devices to advance both radiography and patient safety in the hospital.
The new system displays real-time 3-D images of preoperative scans on a touch-screen monitor and is equipped with two infrared cameras that track the patient’s position in the OR.
Siemens Artis zeego’s robotic C-arm can sense the location of the operating table, allowing surgeons to maneuver the imaging system at almost every angle, and see internal organs from a three dimensional fly around perspective.
Surgeons see these technologies presented via a "wall of knowledge" — an array of high-definition video monitors that displays patient medical information along with images from the OR.
Additionally, the system incorperates a new patient-aware operating room, from LiveData and Karl Storz Endoscopy-America, which enables intra-hospital videoconferencing and broadcast of live video for teaching purposes.
