"The market was ready for innovation in the surgical space from an advanced imaging perspective," said
According to a release, Airo gantry size and overall flexibility allow facilities to now offer imaging for a range of clinical procedures while helping overcome conventional intraoperative limitations. An all-in-one solution, Airo offers the imaging quality of a diagnostic CT scanner, full Hounsfield soft tissue imaging, with a scan volume of 51.2cm x 100cm.
"Airo has been designed from the ground up and incorporates valuable practitioner insights," said
An integrated O.R. table system from Trumpf is the foundation for reproducible patient positioning with defined movement of the gantry relative to the patient. A variety of table tops allow surgeons to accommodate a range of procedures.
Airo is available now in the US and first shipments are expected beginning of 2014.
