Interventional procedures might pose challenges even to the most experienced physicians. The PROcedure Rehearsal Studio™ was developed to assist clinicians prepare for their upcoming intervention by using segmentation technology to create a patient specific 3D anatomical model based on scanned images.

3D digital models can be exported to a virtual simulation environment or in the form of STL files for use in wide variety of applications, including 3D printing and CAD software for the purpose of preoperative surgical planning.

  • Clinical Planning

    Validation studies confirm that in a clinical setting, the PROcedure Rehearsal Studio may be an optimal tool for the advance planning of an endovascular procedure. Pre-Op planning may result in better overall outcomes for patients- and holds many advantages to the clinician such as:

    • Simplify procedure planning
    • Shorten procedure time
    • Reduce radiation exposure time
    • Reduce usage of contrast media and tools
    • Prevent complications and reduce risks
    • Enhance effective decision making

    Great examples of how the PROcedure Rehearsal Studio’s advanced technology can be used may be seen in the presentation and various live cases shown below.  In all cases, a CT scan was first loaded into the PROcedure Rehearsal Studio workstation followed by rehearsing the procedure in a true-to-life virtual reality environment.

  • Training

    Incorporating the PROcedure Rehearsal Studio into professional training provides the trainee with a growing number of opportunities to practice various procedures on virtual patients based on real cases.

    The PROcedure Rehearsal Studio is extremely beneficial to:

    • Increase the number of cases that can be practiced on the ANGIO Mentor and provide the opportunity to share those with strong teaching value.
    • Ease the introduction of minimally invasive tools developed by medical device companies by allowing true to life hands-on practice.
    • Provide the opportunity for training programs to create curricula that fits the program’s specific needs.
    • Incorporating the simulation into clinical practice unifies the procedure approach and serves as a convenient platform for group discussions.
“PROcedure Rehearsal Studio provides a unique opportunity to practice procedures with patient-specific anatomy. It is an invaluable tool when there is case-specific uncertainty using traditional 3D reconstruction. Pre-procedure simulation provides the operator reassurance that the plan and device chosen will deliver the expected outcome. It improves the safety, timeliness, and efficiency of EVAR not only in training programs but in daily, clinical practice.”

  • Library of Modules

    The expanding library of modules offers preoperative treatment evaluation and hands-on training for multi-disciplinary interventional procedures in cardiology, radiology, neuroradiology, and vascular surgery.

    Our leading technology allows for the creation of a 3D anatomical model from a patient’s scan, which can be exported to a virtual simulation environment, be used with CAD software or physically printed using a 3D printer.
