Thousands of Virtual Fiducials in a FLASH™
The FLASH™ Navigation System is the first and only Machine-Vision platform that delivers on the promise of image guided navigation. Unlike traditional image guided navigation systems that rely on time-consuming registration devices or laborious point matching techniques, FLASH™ Navigation uses only visible light for nearly instantaneous cranial registration.
7D Surgical has integrated the power of Machine-Vision technology into cranial surgery. The result is near-instant, effortless registration using the patient’s own anatomy as virtual fiducials.book a demo
cranial registration in seconds
With a single FLASH™, and in less than 30 seconds, 1,000,000 points are digitized using 7D’s advanced cranial software algorithms.
completely eliminates sponge fiducials
With the accuracy of true contactless registration, the FLASH Navigation System utilizes visible light to register directly to the skin or skull surface, eliminating the need for sponge fiducials and enabling accurate post-fossa registration.
The Machine-Vision technology is embedded in an onboard overhead surgical light, which eliminates line of sight frustrations in the operating room. The overhead light, in combination with the foot pedal control of the software, puts the surgeon in total control from start to finish.
Contactless flash™ registration to the skin
In a Flash™, a constellation of 1,000,000 virtual fiducials are captured automatically. It’s totally contactless registration.
7D’s dual-plane reference array allows for seamless transition between facial and posterior fossa registrations.
Move beyond sponge fiducials – 7D’s virtual fiducials use the patient’s own anatomy for extremely accurate Flash™ Registrations.
Contactless flash™ registration to the skull
Machine-Vision enables accurate posterior fossa registration by Flashing directly to the skull.
Effortlessly navigate any region by Flashing directly to the area of interest.
Because this is completely contactless registration, the entire workflow is sterile.
7D’s instantaneous linked registration technology removes the need for inefficient and time-consuming image fusion.
Advanced technology enables navigation with layered CT and MRI datasets registered directly to the patient in real-time.
Eliminate the error associated with traditional image fusion by registering directly to the patient in just seconds.
