Interventional procedures might pose challenges even to the most experienced physicians. The PROcedure Rehearsal Studio™ was developed to assist clinicians prepare for their upcoming intervention by using segmentation technology to create a patient specific 3D anatomical model based on scanned images.
3D digital models can be exported to a virtual simulation environment or in the form of STL files for use in wide variety of applications, including 3D printing and CAD software for the purpose of preoperative surgical planning.
Validation studies confirm that in a clinical setting, the PROcedure Rehearsal Studio may be an optimal tool for the advance planning of an endovascular procedure. Pre-Op planning may result in better overall outcomes for patients- and holds many advantages to the clinician such as:
Simplify procedure planning
Shorten procedure time
Reduce radiation exposure time
Reduce usage of contrast media and tools
Prevent complications and reduce risks
Enhance effective decision making
Great examples of how the PROcedure Rehearsal Studio’s advanced technology can be used may be seen in the presentation and various live cases shown below. In all cases, a CT scan was first loaded into the PROcedure Rehearsal Studio workstation followed by rehearsing the procedure in a true-to-life virtual reality environment.Training
Incorporating the PROcedure Rehearsal Studio into professional training provides the trainee with a growing number of opportunities to practice various procedures on virtual patients based on real cases.
