Amsterdam-based Philips signed a strategic partnership with UK-based Cydar — a provider of cloud-based procedure maps software for planning and guiding surgery in real-time. The partnership will help enhance Zenition’s clinical accuracy and efficiency and improve outcomes for patients undergoing endovascular treatment.
Philips said in a news release that the Zenition mobile C-arm system combines image capture, processing, ease-of-use and versatility to maximize operating room performance. At the same time, the integration of Cydar EV Maps software into the platform will add extended procedure planning and real-time 3D guidance capabilities.
Cydar’s EV Maps assists in planning, real-time guidance and post-procedure review for endovascular surgery. The goal is to bring cloud-based AI and computer vision to mobile surgery to reduce radiation exposure, fluoroscopy time and procedure time. Surgeons using Cydar’s platform can create a detailed, patient-specific 3D map of the target vasculature to help plan surgery. They can then augment intraoperative live image guidance, updating the maps in real-time.
The platform from Cydar is currently in use across the U.S., UK and European Union as certified software-as-a-medical-device with CE mark and FDA 510(k) clearance.
