Increase accuracy and confidence with OpenSight AR surgical navigation
Focus on your Patient Not a Monitor

OpenSight from Novarad is an FDA-cleared augmented reality surgical navigation system that increases surgical accuracy and confidence. Like a surgical GPS, OpenSight enables physicians to find and reach their target destination more quickly.

OpenSight renders 2D, 3D, and 4D digital images from any modality into a highly detailed hologram. Using patented virtual tool technology with an integrated targeting system, the hologram is overlaid directly and accurately onto a patient's body. Overlay virtual annotations for incisions, define pathology and anatomy, and create a virtual needle or instrument insertions.

Precision Imaging & Guidance for Precision Healthcare

Precision prevents errors, reduces operating room times and improves the patient's experience and outcome. Using optical code alignment, cameras and sensors, Open Sight maps both the patient and the surrounding environment from above, to the side, behind or even underneath the patient. OpenSight significantly improves a physician's understanding of their patient and allows them to:

  • Make more precise incisions. Visualise internal anatomy from cross-sectional imaging superimposed on a patient prior to surgery.

  • Navigate with knowledge. Mark the appropriate entrance point or angle, trajectory and location for endoscope or needle placement, extract a foreign body, or  place a pedicle screw.

  • Virtually annotate structures. Colourise target organs as well as outline or annotate pathology to create semi-transparent, holograms of targeted anatomy.

  • Patient engagement. Patients and their loved ones can view the annotated holographic images to better understand their procedure and feel more confidence in their physician.

  • Teach with confidence. Multiple headsets can be shared among members of clinical teams, improving training and collaboration.
