Machine Vision for Brain Surgery.
According to an FDA warning, errors in the navigation systems used by surgeons are leading to “deaths, serious or life-threatening injuries”.
That’s why we built a Machine Vision Platform based on our uniquely capable 3D optical scanner to address the dominant error in open brain surgery, “brain-shift”.
Solving this problem will preserve healthy brain tissue for the patient and reduce their time under anesthesia while saving U.S. hospitals billions in costs associated with failed and aborted procedures, extended recovery periods, and uncompensated readmissions.
Taking the guess work out of brain surgery.
How our solution for brain-shift works:
Surgical navigation systems rely on the patients preoperative MRI- to guide the surgeon during surgery.
But, the brain is continuously changing shape during the procedure.
During surgery, our 3D optical scanner tracks sub-millimeter changes to the exposed brain.
We will use this data to simulate brain shift and repeatedly update the navigation system with corrected MRI’s

Advanced Scanners is pilot stage medical device company, formed in 2017 by a PhD optical physicist and a serial entrepreneur to solve this decades old problem.
