7D Surgical received CE mark certification for its Machine-vision Image Guided Surgery system for spinal surgery.
The MvIGS system is an image-guided system that uses camera-based technology and machine-vision algorithms. The spine navigation system uses visible light to allow spine surgeons to perform spinal registration in seconds.
“We are extremely excited to achieve our CE Mark. With successful launches already underway in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the Caribbean, we are eager to begin expanding the MvIGS technology into the European spine market,” CEO Beau Standish said in a news release. “We are very proud of our team for accomplishing this important milestone and we are continuing our growth and expansion into international markets.”
The technology uses 7D Surgical’s Flash Registration and Flash Fix technology to offer segmental registration. It allows each vertebral body to be registered independently in a spinal registration. The system’s accuracy is not dependent on the position of the patient’s spine or patient movement that could occur during the procedure.
“Accomplishing true segmental registration with our Flash™ Technology has had a tremendous impact on the safety and efficacy of the system, as it results in high navigational accuracy in mobile areas of the spine and complex anatomy,” chief revenue officer Brian Stuart said. “We are truly transforming what medical imaging and navigation is and what it can do to improve patient outcomes, while driving down healthcare costs. We are extremely excited to introduce our novel 7D MvIGS system to European customers later this year.”
