How IOPS Works

Dr. Matthew Eagleton, Scientific Advisor for Centerline Biomedical, describes how IOPS' advanced visualization features can be used to treat patients without the use of radiation.
Imagine navigating through vasculature similar to the way a GPS navigates an unknown highway – efficiently guiding a driver along a clear path. Centerline’s IOPS works in a similar fashion, as outlined in our whitepaper.

Utilizing a sophisticated mathematical geometric model of vascular anatomy with a low-level electromagnetic field to track the patient and surgical guidewires and catheters, IOPS provides a dramatic 3-D visualization improvement over fluoroscopy without employing additional ionizing radiation. IOPS delivers real-time, 3-D guidance, aiming to make endovascular procedures safer, more accurate, and more efficient.

“This is great. We navigated to all four target vessels without any fluoroscopy. This is a realistic representation of anatomy and you can see real-time changes and movement of the catheter.””

Centerline is of the firm conviction that medical technology can benefit immensely from sound design and innovation, and must be easy to use and easily adopted to maximize impact.  That’s why we have developed IOPS to fit seamlessly into the existing surgical workflow.

  • The IOPS mobile platform can be rolled into an OR and attached to the table in a matter of minutes.
  • Its 3-D visualization is based on images already collected in the current standard of care.
  • Its user-friendly interface looks and feels like other imaging tools surgeons are accustomed to.
  • It requires minimal training to use.
