Cambridge, United Kingdom - Cydar Medical, has today announced a collaboration with Brainlab, the digital medical technology company, enabling its Cydar EV Maps augmented intelligence software to integrate with Brainlab’s Buzz Digital Information Hub. This allows endovascular surgeons to use advanced surgical visualization and machine-learning technology in real time to enhance data-driven decision making during surgical procedures, and across the entire patient journey.

Cydar EV Maps uses next-generation GPU cloud computing to create detailed patient-specific 3D maps of soft tissue for procedure planning, image-guided intra-operative navigation, and post-operative review. Cydar EV Maps will be automatically integrated, displayed, and controlled through Brainlab Buzz to provide surgeons with their preferred operating theatre information and workflows. Buzz 4K visualization technology will display live x-rays combined with the Cydar EV Maps 3D overlay, enabling surgeons to place a stent-graft faster, easier, and smarter.

We believe that offering the market leading Cydar EV Maps solution on the Brainlab Buzz digital surgery platform, will offer the most cutting-edge and comprehensive solution for endovascular procedure planning, guidance, review and workflow and operative execution”.
