Biplane Imaging Navigation
In the Neuro Interventional Suite, Biplane imaging plays an important role in mapping the blood vessels prior to surgery. During endovascular procedures, it provides a more precise treatment picture that is safer for the patient.
Biplane is digital x-ray technology that uses two mounted rotating cameras, one on each side of a patient, to take simultaneous pictures. The cameras move front to back and side to side to produce 3D images that show detailed vessel and soft tissue anatomy.
This allows neurovascular specialists to follow the path of blood flow through vessels and creates a "roadmap" for reaching and treating the precise location of disease, malformation or life-threatening conditions, including blood clots and aneurysms.
Biplane imaging is used in many interventional treatments including coiling, carotid stenting, embolization, thrombolysis, vertebroplasty and vasospasm.
