C-InSight® is an add-on to your C-Arm, converting 2D scans to 3D images intraoperatively.
C-InSight® is clinically equivalent to other commercial 3D systems with the advantages of being affordable, utilizing existing equipment and reducing radiation.
C-InSight® provides 3D images at around 5%-10% of radiation exposure levels compared to common CT scans. Being in line with FDA guidelines for radiation reduction, C-InSight® is safer for both OR staff and for the patients, especially patients who are sensitive to radiation such as pediatric and female patients.
Affordable & Cost effective
C-InSight® increases the utilization of existing C-Arms with minimal investment.
It quickly connects to any C-Arm with a video output and converts 2D scans to 3D images in under 2 minutes.
Furthermore, in many cases C-InSight® eliminates the need for post operative CT scans.
Simple and Intuitive Software
C-InSight® is user friendly and intuitive. After a short in-service, any OR technician or staff can easily plug C-InSight® into the C-Arm and follow the simple step by step instructions.
For more information, images and C-inSight® movies, visit: http://www.mazorst.com/C-InSight.asp and see it first hand in the exhibit hall.
