SBIR Award Title

SBIR Phase II: 4D scanner for image guided interventions

SBIR Award Abstract

The broader impact/commercial potential of this project is the significant improvement of<br/>surgical accuracy, which will dramatically reduce surgical errors, improve outcomes and<br/>reduce healthcare costs. In spine surgery alone, there are more than 500,000<br/>procedures every year in the US utilizing implants such as screws. In 4% to 11% of<br/>these surgeries, the implant placement is inaccurate. For the patient this translates into<br/>longer recoveries - from days to weeks - and in many cases into a second revis... more
