A recently published abstract in the Journal of Vascular Surgery (Volume 67, Number 6) highlights the benefits of Cydar’s revolutionary endovascular software. Other 3D fusion devices available on the market use hardware-based tracking points on the operating table to position the overlay image. This can be time consuming for the physicians and can potentially lead to an inaccurate overlay, in a situation where millimetres count. Cydar is unique in that it uses computer vision rather than the operating table to produce an accurate and reliable hands-free 3D overlay that is continuously updated through image matching techniques.
The study’s findings conclude that use of Cydar EV decreases radiation exposure, fluoroscopy time, and procedure time. It states: “[Cydar’s] novel technology has the potential to improve clinical outcomes, to reduce costs, and to broaden the application of 3D fusion imaging.”

Cydar Medical are excited to be shortlisted for the AIconics Awards for best application in healthcare. Cydar’s novel software, powered by high performance cloud-based computing, revolutionizes endovascular surgery by deducing the patient’s body position through a comparison of the bone anatomy visible on a radiograph and the preoperative CT scan, thereby producing an accurate and reliable hands-free 3D overlay that is continuously updated through image matching techniques. CydarEV improves clinical outcomes, reduces costs, leads to an overall 50% reduction in radiation dose, and makes operating faster and more controlled for the physicians.
The AIconics are organised by AI Business and are a highlight of the upcoming AI Summit London, the world’s largest AI event for business that brings together 15,000 delegates at the ExCeL on the 13th and 14th of June 2018.
The Awards presentation ceremony will take place in the evening of the 12th of June at The State Apartments of Kensington Palace in London. Further information can be found on www.theaiconics.com/london
