IOPS™

Intra-Operative Positioning System

A New Way to Envision Endovascular Navigation

Centerline Biomedical’s Intra-Operative Positioning System (IOPS™) technology is an innovative, 3D GPS-like surgical navigation technology that improves endovascular procedure outcomes and reduces radiation exposure.

IOPS™ ADVANTAGE - Time Reduction

IOPS™ ADVANTAGE

Time Reduction

A recent in vitro study found that, overall, the mean time necessary to cannulate a given vessel using 3D navigation was 53.4% of the time necessary using traditional 2D navigation, indicating a time savings of 46.6%

IOPS™ ADVANTAGE

Improved Visualization Leads to Better Outcomes

Patient outcomes are improved as we reduce procedural times with better visualization, greater control, and real-time position navigation data.

IOPS™ ADVANTAGE - Mitigate Radiation

IOPS™ ADVANTAGE

Mitigate the Growing Risk of Radiation Exposure and Contrast Dye

As endovascular procedures become more complex, the risk of radiation exposure continues to increase.

Radiation Exposure Risk 1

%

Display significant posterior subcapsular lens changes, a precursor to cataracts 1

Radiation Exposure Risk 2

%

Of self-reported brain tumors in interventionalists originated on the left side of the head, the area closest to the radiation source 2

Radiation Exposure Risk 3

%

Incidence of spine issues after 21 years in practice, a result of wearing heavy radiation protection apparel 3

Radiation Exposure Risk 4

%

Of interventional cardiologists miss work due to orthopedic issues 4

IOPS™ Components

“Compared to standard imaging, we cut the procedural time by more than half during a preclinical study. Especially in complex interventions, every minute counts, and this should translate to the ability to treat more patients at less cost, with a simultaneous increase in precision safety.”
