Brainlab (Munich, Bavaria) presented its newest advancements in streamlining the operating room (OR) workflow before, during and after surgery at MEDICA, the world’s biggest medical trade fair, held in Düsseldorf, Germany, from November 12-15, 2018.

The event offered a comprehensive overview of the latest medical products, services and developments for modern treatment in doctors’ practices and hospitals. At MEDICA 2018, the focus was on laboratory technology, physiotherapy and orthopedic technology, commodities and consumables, high-tech medicine (electrotherapy and medical technology) and healthcare IT, among others.

With its vast experience in hospital IT integration of video sources, hardware, software, and patient data management, Brainlab helps clients leverage their existing IT technology with simplified infrastructure, bringing unique value to the surgical and IT teams. Brainlab’s highlights at MEDICA 2018 included its automated indication-specific Smart Anatomy Views for fast and accurate surgical planning, sleek hospital IT integration with automatic patient data pre-fetching in the OR, communication tools, and easy intra- and post-op surgical documentation.

At MEDICA 2018, the company demonstrated how Brainlab Digital O.R. streamlines, simplifies and consolidates the huge influx of data to free up time not only for the surgeon, but the entire surgical team. Before the case, the right patient data and images are loaded from the PACS and HIS systems and are automatically displayed where the surgeon needs it most. During the procedure, digital time-out, high-end recordings and screenshots can be done and shared outside of the room with minimal effort. After the procedure, OR documentation is automatically transferred to the preferred picture archive or storage location (PACS, HIS, VNA, USB drive) and is accessible immediately on any client PC or connected iPad through the hospital HIS for review or patient consultation. DICOM surgical recordings can be saved in a temporary scalable storage server until they are edited on-the-fly with the Brainlab Video Editor, ensuring only the most relevant data is stored on the patient record in the HIS or downloadable in MP4 format.

Brainlab also demonstrated its new Smart Anatomy Views, which has been developed for various specialties (Cranial, Spine, Abdomen) and extracts the most relevant information from a variety of datasets (CT, MRI TOF, angiography), providing surgeons with unique anatomical insights in seconds and eliminating cumbersome steps in image preparation.
