Inliant have created a unique way of being able to track the drilling process during implant surgery of their patients. A pre-surgical CBCT scan of the patient is carried out and the sensors do the rest. One sensor is placed in the surgical stent, which is an integral part of the implant process, whilst the other is placed in the hand held drill. The combination of these things allows an overlay of the drills position relative to the patient on the CBCT scan.
This technology allows the medical professional to be aware of where the drill end is at all times during performing surgery, making the process much easier, safer and precise.
