NeuroLogica and Medtronic Surgical Technologies have announced the integration of NeuroLogica’s portable BodyTom 32-slice CT scanner with Medtronic’s StealthStation S7 surgical navigation system.


This collaboration enables NeuroLogica’s portable BodyTom CT scanner and Medtronic’s StealthStation surgical navigation system to be used in cranial neurosurgery procedures through the use of Medtronic’s Automatic Intraoperative Registration (StealthAiR) technology. StealthAiR is a fully automatic, universally compatible, patient registration process for sites using intraoperative CT scanners and Navigation.

“NeuroLogica is pleased to announce this integration with Medtronic,” said Eric Bailey, president and CEO, NeuroLogica. “As intraoperative imaging becomes a staple in the operating room, the integration between BodyTom and StealthAiR will serve to enhance patient outcomes and stretch the limits of what was previously thought possible in complex neurosurgical cases.”


The BodyTom is a completely portable, full body, 32 slice CT with 85cm gantry and 60cm field of view. The BodyTom is battery powered therefore it can be transported from room to room, it is DICOM 3.1 compliant and compatible with all PACS, surgical navigation, electronic medical records, and planning systems.
