FDA Approves PrecisionOS Invision as a VR Preoperative Planning Tool
PrecisionOS® has received a 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to begin marketing PrecisionOS Invision™ a patient specific planning tool using Virtual Reality (VR). The patented software, to be available in early 2022, lets surgeons use an Oculus Quest 2 device to do preoperative planning.
Invision is a next generation patient specific planning tool. Currently surgeons view a simulated 3D image of the patient on a computer screen and then carry that mental model to the operating room. Invision software automatically converts the patient’s computed tomography (CT) scan from any PACS system into a 3D reconstruction within seconds. Surgeons can then use the Oculus Quest 2 to view, manipulate and isolate relevant anatomical areas prior to performing the actual surgical procedure.
