Physicians at NYU Langone Medical Center are the first in New York State to treat patients with VectorVision flex. "We are proud to have NYU Langone Medical Center as a premier center offering VectorVision flex in New York State. We look forward to the advancements in patient care that the technology brings as part of their larger commitment to excellence in healthcare," stated Sean Clark, President, BrainLAB Inc.

VectorVision flex enables neurosurgeons to visualize and track instrument positioning, relative to pre-operative diagnostic images, and view critical functional areas and pathways within the brain making surgery more precise and safer for the patient. VectorVision flex displays real-time, 3D images of the patient's pre-operative MR or CT scan and is equipped with two infrared cameras that track the patient's positioning on the operating table.

VectorVision flex is also equipped with Digital Lightbox©, an interactive multi-touch viewing platform. Digital Lightbox reinvents the lightbox for the computer age and brings static images to life for faster and more effective physician access to multiple sources of digital patient data. Image manipulation features allow physicians to modify, navigate and customize patient data to better leverage information for more informed decision-making.

"At NYU Langone Medical Center, our goal is to continuously offer patients comprehensive treatment options with minimally-invasive procedures using advanced technologies," said John G. Golfinos, MD, Chair, Department of Neurosurgery at NYU Langone Medical Center. "Using state-of-the-art technology like VectorVision( )flex allows our surgeons to have better access to critical patient data and develop detailed surgical plans resulting in safer procedures and faster recovery for our patients."
