Proprio today announced the successful first-in-human use of its Paradigm surgical technology platform for 3D visualization.
Seattle-based Proprio designed the Paradigm surgical navigation platform to replace traditional surgical navigation technologies. It uses an advanced approach to avoid pitfalls that pull attention away from the patient and disrupt workflows.
This approach utilizes the fusing of light field imaging technology and AI. It gives surgical teams 3D visualization of both anatomical structures and the surgical environment. The FDA cleared Paradigm in April.
Dr. Richard J. Bransford of the University of Washington Harborview Medical Center performed the procedure.
“The use of Paradigm in our surgical environment is a game-changer representing the future of spinal surgery,” Bransford said. “The real-time 3D imagery allowed us to visualize the patient’s anatomy in ways not previously available to us. That will ultimately enable us to drive better outcomes for patients.”
