Our Services Include
Stryker Image-Guided Navigation
Surgeons at Owensboro Health are treating patients using the Stryker Image-Guided Navigation system, advanced 3-D technology that greatly increases safety and accuracy for delicate procedures like sinus surgeries or the removal of brain tumors.
Watch as Dr. Logan and Dr. Taylor demonstrate Stryker.
How It Works
Stryker technology combines a virtual 3-D model of the patient's sinus structure or brain anatomy with an interactive display of the surgeon's instruments, enabling doctors to operate in complex areas of the head and neck with greater confidence. Patients undergo a series of CT scans or MRIs to capture images of the soft tissue and bony structures in the head and neck.
- Creates a virtual 3-D model of the patient's anatomy for display in the operating room
- Infrared camera communicates with LED-equipped surgical instruments to track real-time movements
- Mathematically compensates for changes in the patient's position
