Scopis Medical Reports: McGill University Health Center Selected as the First Reference Site in North America for its Cutting-edge Surgical Navigation System

Scopis is a company specializing in surgical navigation and medical augmented and mixed reality, has announced that McGill University Health Center (MUHC) will be the first reference center and hospital in North America to use Scopis’s TGS (target-guided surgery) and augmented reality (AR) technologies in ear, nose and throat (ENT) surgeries.

First Mixed-Reality Surgical Holographic Navigation Platform Integrating Microsoft HoloLens for Open and Minimally-Invasive Spine Surgery

To use the Scopis Holographic Navigation Platform during such an operation, the surgeon wears Microsoft HoloLens glasses, which communicate wirelessly with the Scopis system. The planned positioning of the pedicle screws is projected onto the surgeon’s field of view and overlaid exactly onto the patient, creating the mixed reality experience. This allows the surgeon to find the screws’ planned positions faster and to align surgical instruments interactively with the holographic visualization.
