DenX`s innovative CT-image driven implant planning and placement system, `IGI`, was recently honoured with a Medical Design Excellence Award. IGI allows a virtual implant to be placed on the CT image with the assistance of advanced planning tools. During the surgical procedure, the clinician guides the implant to the precise location, angle and depth required according to the plan. Real-time localization feedback assisted by audio and visual media allows the clinician to monitor the success of the procedure and avoid critical mistakes at all times.
