Exclusive Software Intelligence Behind the NeuroBlate® System

NeuroBlate Fusion™ Software allows neurosurgeons to plan, deliver, and monitor MRI-guided robotic laser thermotherapy.

Advanced image co-registration tools

Advanced image co-registration tools

  • Precisely shapes ablation margins to ensure surgical accuracy
  • Accepts image data from external planning software to display critical information to optimize visibility of the intended ablation target
Enhanced visualization of the ablation target

Enhanced visualization of the ablation target

  • Multi-planar, volume contouring tools allow the user to delineate the target ablation zone and adjacent structures

NeuroBlate Fusion Software Workflow Steps

Planning

1. Registration

Load and fuse (co-register) DICOM image data

1. Registration

Load and fuse (co-register) DICOM image data

Pre-procedure DICOM image data is loaded into the software

Image data sets are co-registered (image fusion)

Registration matches the secondary imaging to the master image

2. Volume

Define anatomical regions of the brain

2. Volume

Define anatomical regions of the brain

The user defines anatomical areas of the interest in the brain

Volumes can be used to define specific treatment regions such as tumors or epileptic foci

Critical structures can also be identified as “no-go” zones to avoid during the procedure

3. Trajectory

Describe the entry location and anatomical target for probe insertion in the brain

3. Trajectory

Describe the entry location and anatomical target for probe insertion in the brain

Entry and target points are pre-defined

The system displays a line in 3D space to identify the path to the target

Procedure

4. Align

Define the radial orientation (direction the laser exits the probe) for SideFire®

4. Align

Define the radial orientation (direction the laser exits the probe) for SideFire®

The system aligns the starting point of rotation where the laser exits the probe

Alignment of the laser probe allows robotic control of laser directionality throughout the procedure

5. Insert

Match the software rendered probe to the actual position of the laser probe in the brain

5. Insert

Match the software rendered probe to the actual position of the laser probe in the brain

The system matches the position of the laser probe to the actual location on the MRI image

Once confirmed, the user can modify the linear and rotational position of the probe to reach the intended target

6. Treat

Thermal monitoring – Laser actuation

6. Treat

Thermal monitoring – Laser actuation

Tissue temperature of the ablation zone is monitored throughout the procedure

The software displays contours (outlines) of cell damage in multiple image planes

Position and orientation of the laser probe can manipulated remotely throughout the procedure

Disclosures

Monteris provides technology for neurosurgeons, which allows them to ablate (destroy with lethal heat) from the inside, brain lesions and brain tumors that may be difficult to approach via traditional methods. Technology includes the NeuroBlate System, AxiiiS, AtamA, and MiniBolt devices, which may be used together to apply the focused laser energy with little or no effect on surrounding healthy tissue. The NeuroBlate System provides clinicians a tool that offers near real-time control and MRI visualization of the therapy during laser ablation treatment.

All brain surgeries carry risk. Possible adverse events include, but are not limited to, hematoma, embolic events, edema, bleeding, cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) leakage, infection, unintended major tissue damage and permanent neurological deficits. Prior to using these devices, please review the Instructions for Use for a complete listing of indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions and potential adverse events.
