Intraoperative 3D imaging can be crucial for minimally invasive orthopedic and trauma surgery, particularly when complex fractures are involved. Studies show that intraoperative corrections are necessary for a significant number of patients who undergo minimally invasive procedures.1 Without intraoperative 3D imaging, a postoperative CT scan would be needed to assess results in 3D, and clinically relevant malplacements discovered at that point would require a separate surgery. You can potentially avoid these revision surgeries by intraoperatively planning, guiding, and evaluating fracture reduction and implant placement as well as making corrections before the patient leaves the OR.
With our imaging systems, you can take the treatment of complex fractures to a new level thanks to high-quality 2D/3D intraoperative visualization, workflow guidance, and fast evaluation of intraoperative results.
Orthopedic and trauma procedures with Hybrid OR imaging solutions
Our Hybrid OR imaging solutions help optimize clinical operations, enabling guided screw fixation even in complex cases.
Percutaneous iliosacral screw fixation in the Hybrid OR
Our imaging systems give you more control during screw fixation procedures with simplified intraoperative 3D image acquisition, automated planning, guided screw placement, and immediate results evaluation.

Surgery with mobile C-arms
Our mobile C-arms combine mobility, flexibility, and 3D imaging technology for detailed intraoperative visualization of anatomies and simplified evaluation of implant placement results.
Our imaging systems allow you to correct implant placement intraoperatively instead of during a separate revision surgery.
Experience report: the impact of mobile 3D imaging
Intraoperative 3D imaging can transform the way you perform challenging fracture reductions and implant placements. In this clinical experience report, you will see how new imaging tools that feature intelligent applications help surgeons evaluate results intraoperatively.4
