XR90 is an augmented reality visualization and surgical navigation platform that allows providers to see a patient’s internal soft tissues, vascular, organ and skeletal structures in 3D based on their CT images.
It also combines CT imaging with ultrasound, allowing 3D holographic images to be displayed anatomically underneath the patient’s skin, allowing providers to perform minimally invasive procedures, such as tumor ablations and biopsies. A Holographic Light Ray is also used to track and display the path of a physician’s instrument for surgical navigation.
THE LARGER TREND
In December, the Cleveland-based company announced it entered into a know-how agreement with Mayo Clinic, in which the health system would provide technology, clinical and research expertise to accelerate innovation and advance procedural augmented reality solutions.
A month prior, MediView XR announced a collaboration with GE Healthcare to codevelop the OmnifyXR Interventional Suite System, which will combine GE’s imaging technologies with MediView’s augmented reality and surgical navigation expertise to allow physicians to evaluate multiple holographic displays of live imaging in 3D.
Other companies offering a surgical navigation platform utilizing extended reality are Augmedics, which scored $82.5 million in Series D financing last month, and Osso VR, which garnered $66 million in Series C funding in 2022 and $27 million in Series B funding in 2021.
