The SIS System is software designed to enhance standard clinical images for the visualization of anatomical structures of the brain

  • No software to download, install or maintain

  • FDA cleared visualization technology

  • The SIS System runs on the cloud and allows users to:

  • Upload pre- and postoperative imaging and download results through the same site

  • Download SIS alpha imaging to the user's PACS or navigation platform

  • Use standard DICOM data and alleviate the need to run additional software or hardware platforms

  • Access the SIS System from anywhere, including web browser, PACS and navigation platforms that are connected to PACS

SIS Alpha Image for Accurate Planning

  • Patient-specific imaging for planning procedures that target the STN and GPi/GPe

  • The SIS System utilizes standard clinical images (T1- and T2-weighted) MR images

  • An alpha map highlights the structure of interest on the patient's clinical imaging

  • Efficient surgical planning allowing download/upload of alpha image to a navigation platform and PACS

  • Validated accuracy less than 1mm

3D Visualization of Implanted Leads for Enhanced/Improved Programming

  • Generates a patient-specific 3D model showing the position of the DBS lead and individual contacts in relation to anatomical structures

  • The only true patient-specific postoperative reconstruction of lead location currently available

  • Improved efficiency of programming by visualization of lead, ring and directional contacts relative to the DBS structures of interest

"SIS greatly improves the standard surgical planning programs I use, and leaves no doubt as to where the lead target is located."

"In my 30 some years of treating movement disorders, there is nothing quite like seeing the life-changing benefit that a patient experiences with deep brain stimulation. These benefits are critically dependent on proper lead placement in the targeted structure and the programming that follows. The SIS system provides the roadmap for both, leading to improved accuracy for planning, placement and programming of deep brain stimulation systems."

“Lead location plays a significant role in determining clinic benefit of stimulation. Given the variation in size, shape and configuration of anatomical targets, patient-specific lead localization offers insight into the best patient programming strategies. ”
