TEL AVIV, Israel & SAN JOSE, California – (COMMERCIAL THREAD) – RSIP Vision, a clinically proven leader in real-world AI solutions for medical image analysis, today announced a new 2D to 3D recording module that will improve the performance of orthopedic surgeries , such as total hip replacement surgery. Using a proprietary neural network, trained in patient-specific imaging, this module will enable powerful and automated real-time intraoperative assessments of the actual location and positioning of implants and bones, increasing accuracy and improving performance of surgery. This is achieved by matching a preoperative CT to an intraoperative fluoroscopy and giving the surgeon a real-time indication accordingly. The solution aims to increase the efficiency of the planning and execution phases of hip replacement surgery through the automated detection of landmarks and measurement of anatomical relationships.
The new module joins a broad suite of orthopedic image analysis tools for preoperative planning and intraoperative navigation developed by RSIP Vision. It is based on a unique, AI-based, patient-specific image recording algorithm developed in RSIP’s innovation lab and is offered to leading implant and medical imaging companies to power specific intraoperative procedures, such as surgical solutions for hip replacement. Along with the initial 2D to 3D femur and pelvis recording capability, RSIP is developing additional modules for recording implant material as well as a suite of 3D anatomical measurements, which will be offered in the near future.
Total joint replacement is one of the most common orthopedic procedures. According to the Agency for Healthcare Quality and Research, more than 450,000 total hip replacements are performed each year in the United States. As the quality of results and the volume of the procedure continue to grow, surgeons continue to recognize the importance of patient-specific planning and positioning of functional components. To extend the longevity of implants and accommodate younger, more active patients, surgeons are using these types of emerging technologies with results on the order of submillimeter precision.
How it works
As the surgeon moves through the various stages of the procedure, the system recognizes and updates changes from the preoperative state to confirm that the components are in their desired positions. This new AI-based approach will be unique in its ability to record and robustly detect anatomical landmarks in real time, opening up a multitude of advanced applications.
âNowadays we are seeing more and more patients with active lifestyles undergoing orthopedic surgery, therefore the need for accurate and successful orthopedic surgeries is increasing. These patients have years and years of active life beyond them and every millimeter in the final positioning counts, âsaid Dr Shai Factor, orthopedic surgeon at Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center in Israel. Achieving such precision is not easy to achieve, but it is vital, which is why today we rely on our personal experience and our gaze to achieve it. This technology will assist and guide us, the surgeons, through the procedure, providing essential information regarding anatomical measurements and implant placement. I believe this will improve the accuracy of our surgeries and may lead to better clinical outcomes.
