Precision VRby Surgical Theater

Each patient-specific VR reconstruction can now be distributed and utilized on the portfolio of Surgical Theater products integrated with existing tools & technologies along the treatment continuum.


Virtual Reality Surgical Planner

The SuRgical Planner (SRP)

SuRgical Planner accesses files from a patient’s traditional image modalities, such as CT or MRI scans, and processes the information to create patient-specific, VR reconstructions to help a neurosurgeon plan surgery, and educate the patient about their neurological condition.

  • The interactive, immersive reconstruction can be seen on a touchscreen and through the use of a VR headset, such as Oculus Rift® or HTC Vive®.
  • Surgeons can fly through the brain and locate medical issues such as a tumor or an aneurysm and study it from every angle with our medical virtual reality services.
  • What SRP provides is especially important when developing an intricate surgical plan by allowing surgeons to create the best surgical approach based on the patient-specific VR reconstruction.

Precision VR Viewer

Available in a wall mount viewer and tablet options, this patient-engagement tool is becoming an intricate part of a surgeon’s clinic. The Precision VR viewer brings the patient-specific VR reconstructions directly to the patient.

Medical VR Tablet
Precision Medical VR Display
  • This interactive and immersive view serves as a new universal language between a doctor, patient and, at times their family, to help educate the patient about their medical condition and their upcoming procedure.
  • The patient care plan is now a shared experience so both the patient and their family have a deeper, much more complete understanding of their diagnosis and the potential benefits of the upcoming minimally-invasive procedure.
  • This technology vastly improves upon the conventional method of the neurosurgeon pointing out the tumor or vascular abnormality on a flat, black-and-white 2D image used in most medical facilities.

Surgical Navigation Advanced platform(Snap)

The Surgical Navigation Advanced Platform, or SNAP, enhances the surgeon’s current operating room workflow by integrating with and enhancing the existing surgical navigation system along with other tools and technologies while using the capabilities of Precision VR.

  • SNAP is revolutionizing the way delicate and highly complex cranial surgical procedures are done, and will soon be used in other surgical applications.
  • The platform enables surgeons to apply patient-specific surgical plans during actual surgeries with the ability to see and know what comes next in the surgical field.
  • Each planned step now is seen onscreen, so the surgeon can synchronize their movements in order to potentially perform the safest, most minimally-invasive procedures possible.
  • Plans are easily reviewed as needed right in the operating room, all in immersive virtual reality.
  • The detailed imaging made possible by the SNAP may lead to much more precise surgical procedures that can protect the brain and may optimize patient outcomes and recovery times.

VR STudio

VR STudio is a collaborative networked, multi-user, multi-disciplinary environment powered by Precision VR to allow for dynamic patient-specific case review, presentations and education.

  • This VR classroom allows surgeons and professors to walk residents and students through a case like never before.
  • Instead of desks and chairs, students in the VR STudio sit in comfortable recliners and slip on their VR headsets as they enter into the patient- and pathology-specific VR reconstructions.
  • Students can walk around or interactively navigate the reconstruction using a controller to understand the patient-specific anatomy.
  • The surgeon or professor can control the student’s view as they present a case and then demonstrate surgical techniques and approaches.
  • In the future, VR STudio will be used to enhance telemedicine experiences, patient-engagement opportunities and broaden collaborative environments.
