2005 OCT 31 - (NewsRx.com) -- Medtronic, Inc., (Minneapolis, MN) and Breakaway Imaging, LLC (Littleton, MA) announced an agreement that grants exclusive worldwide distribution and marketing of Breakaway Imaging's O-arm Imaging System, an intraoperative crossover technology enabling two-dimensional (2-D) (fluoroscopy), multi-plane 2-D and three-dimensional (3-D) volumetric imaging system, to Medtronic Navigation.
The agreement is effective immediately. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
The O-arm Imaging System provides complete multi-dimensional surgical imaging. It is the only approved platform that provides surgeons with real-time, 3-D images, as well as multi-plane, 2-D and fluoroscopic imaging. Initially intended for use in orthopedic surgical procedures, the O-arm Imaging System is designed to expand to additional surgical applications such as image-guided surgery. The O-arm Imaging System received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance earlier this year.
The O-arm system, with a patented breakable gantry and a flat screen detector that enable it to collect 2-D or 3-D volumetric imaging within seconds, is designed specifically for use by surgeons in standard operating rooms while yielding high-quality imaging comparable to fixed CT systems. Electromechanical features enable repeatable positioning of the gantry between imaging shots and an unobtrusive location to permit unrestricted patient access.
