Cydar Medical recently announced it has entered a strategic collaboration with Medtronic. Under the pilot arrangement, Cydar’s EV Maps software will be introduced to up to 40 new global sites, combining Cydar’s augmented intelligence technology with Medtronic’s services and case support, with the goal of improving patient care.
The Cydar EV Maps software harnesses the latest in cloud graphics processing unit (GPU) computing, computer vision and machine learning technology to advance surgical visualization and decision-making in theatre and across the care pathway. This enables clinicians to create detailed patient-specific 3D maps for procedure planning, image-guided navigation, and post-operative review, resulting in less radiation exposure to the patient and the clinical team, reduced procedure time, and increased delivery confidence. This pilot program will also inform the future development of predictive analytics to support procedure planning, by assessing factors such as the risk of endoleaks, sac regression probability and more.
Medtronic is the first medical technology company to enter a public strategic collaboration in digital endovascular technology to advance aortic patient treatment decisions. The collaboration is part of Medtronic’s ongoing commitment to innovation in aortic care for physicians and their patients.
