Our vision is to make navigation-guided surgery available to any patient in any operating room - whether big or small.
By tapping into the powers of artificial intelligence (AI), we enable accurate and safe spine surgeries to the benefit of both patients and surgeons.
ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE: Pathkeeper’s innovative solution includes a 3D camera installed in the OR that tracks the patient's spine and the surgeon’s tools during the entire surgery. A sophisticated AI engine combines these images with a pre-surgery CT scan to allow the surgeon ‘insight’ into the patient’s spine.
Competitors claim 1.5-2 mm accuracy by tracking the spine using pre-op spinal snapshots. Their systems use markers connected to a specific anatomical landmark and do not account for spinal movement throughout surgery leading to a wider margin of error. Pathkeeper's system accuracy is 0.5 mm due to the fact that the device we developed is continuously tracking each vertebra in real-time and taking patient movement and surgeon manipulation into account, effectively ensuring precise tracking of the surgeon’s tools with regards to patient anatomy. Therefore, in real-life surgery, Pathkeeper’s solution is even more superior due to its real-time tracking of the spine.
Pathkeeper’s system is seamlessly installed in the OR and after a very short initial registration process does not require the physician to change workflow.
NO ADDITIONAL RADIATION:
Ionizing radiation is a necessary evil in healthcare. Pathkeeper, as opposed to other navigation solutions, does not require a CT machine in the OR, nor does it require the surgeon to perform multiple CT scans during the surgery. Pathkeeper’s solution is solely based on a pre-surgery CT scan and the real-time tracking offered after the initial registration process.
Automatic registration and image fusion to MRI and X-ray
Automatic spine detection and measurements
Direct anatomical tracking
Real-time and seamless updating of the anatomical map
A SAFER PATH:
Pathkeeper’s solution is highly cost-efficient for both high and low-volume facilities.
