declipse®SPECT Laparoscopy

Improved guidance in laparoscopic SLNB

The 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

declipse®SPECT Laparoscopy - cervix CA SLNB in Cervix Carcinoma
declipse®SPECT Laparoscopy - endometrium CA SLNB in Endometrium Carcinoma
declipse®SPECT Laparoscopy  prostate CA 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 work

The 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.
