Improved guidance in laparoscopic SLNBThe declipse®SPECT Laparoscopy is an intraoperative 3D imaging system for precise, minimally invasive sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB). It generates 3D images of radioactively marked structures using freehand SPECT technology for easy and intuitive SLNB mapping. The intraoperative declipse®SPECT Laparoscopy supports precise navigation and localization of SLNB. The declipse®SPECT Viewer supports preoperative imaging and helps to analyze images such as SPECT/CT and PET/CT, in situ, during the intervention.
Applications of declipse®SPECT Laparoscopy
|SLNB in Cervix Carcinoma|
|SLNB in Endometrium Carcinoma|
|SLNB in Prostate Carcinoma|
Features & Benefits of declipse®SPECT Laparoscopy
- SLNs can be visualized and localized easily, even close to the injection site
- SLNs seen in lymphoscintigraphy can be found again reducing 24% of discrepancy between imaging and surgical findings1
- 3D SPECT images can be acquired intraoperatively at any time during surgery enabling validation of complete resection of all SLNs and instant detection of residually labeled SLNs
- Preoperative images can be navigated virtually and co-registered with the patient in the OR to simplify the localization and mapping of SLNs
How does declipse®SPECT Laparoscopy workThe declipse®SPECT Laporoscopy consists of a highly precise optical navigaton system, a sensitive, lightwight, handheld and laparoscopic gamma detector and an advanced visualization interface for augmented reality video overlay of the generated 3D images for image guided SLNB.
The usage of the declipse®SPECT Laparoscopy is seemlessly integratable into the clinical workflow.
