3D Optical Vision System for Brain Surgeons.
According to a 12/2017 FDA warning, patients are being killed or injured every year because of an error in the navigation systems used by surgeons to guide surgical instruments during open brain surgery.
To save lives and prevent these injuries we are building a 3D optical computer vision platform that will correct this error and update the surgeons navigation system of choice.
Solving this problem will save U.S. hospitals $600,000,000/year, plus the costs of aborted procedures and extended recovery periods, and reduce uncompensated readmissions.
200,000 American men, women and children will have open brain surgery this year.
Each patient's MRI is used to both plan the surgery, and to keep track of the surgeons tools within the brain.
The MRI is a snapshot
The Brain is animated
The surgery begins by opening the cranium, which creates a change in pressure that changes the brain's position and shape.
The Navigations system doesn’t track movement
Precision 3D Vision
Our device tracks this movement and use that data and merges it with a computer-based mechanical model of the brain and updates the surgeons navigation system with a correct 3D model.
The Error is removed, surgery goes as planned.

Advanced Scanners is a seed stage medical device company, formed in 2017 by a PhD optical physicist and a serial entrepreneur to solve this decades old problem.
In the future, robots won't replace humans. They will enhance human capabilities. This trend is taking place all around us. Simply put, machines and computers can perform some tasks so much faster, consistently, and accurately, than we can.
To prevent a lifetime of catastrophic, but avoidable, disabilities for children with epilepsy, we are making a 3D machine vision system to make brain surgery more science, less art.
People and machines, working together. That’s what the future looks like, and we are the eyes of that movement.
