Date:12/15/2011

MUNICH, December 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

This week, university hospital Klinikum rechts der Isar in Munich, Germany, is the first hospital in the world to operate with Brainlab's Curve™ Image Guided Surgery system. The new technology is hoped to provide surgeons with the best possible guidance and control during surgery enabling faster, more precise and safer interventions, and offering improved patient outcomes.

Curve™ is a highly advanced navigation system which integrates the state-of-the-art software from Brainlab to allow instantaneous 3D visualization during surgery. Importantly, during surgery, ultra-fast image updates to its advanced display screens allow surgical instruments to be navigated immediately by surgeons, meaning intra-operative safety is dramatically improved.

Professor Bernhard Meyer, chairman of the Neurosurgery Department at Klinikum rechts der Isar, commented: "We are extremely happy to be able to use the Curve™ system to support surgery as we believe it can offer advantages for both patients and medical staff. Curve™ is much more user-friendly than any other surgical navigation system we have used before and offers tools that will help improve outcomes for our patients. For example, by having ultra-fast access to updated images in the operating room allows us to make informed decisions on-the-spot and best-possible intra-operative control."

The new navigation platform also has multiple interfaces to support image sharing and enhancement. Its streaming option also enables surgeons to transfer live images to a PC outside the operating room, thus allowing other experts to view surgery as it happens. Brainlab's clinical online network Quentry™ further supports safe and fast sharing of patient data with colleagues around the world via cloud computing. The open architecture of the system facilitates the exchange between clinical users so that patients are able
