Image Navigation Presents The Latest Image-Guided Implantology Technology At The European Academy For Osseointegration (EAO) Congress In Geneva

The dual surgical navigation and robotic system - without robots - for dental implantology will be presented from September 29th to October 1st

Fort Lee, NJ /PRNewswire/ - Image Navigation Ltd., a pioneer in the field of surgical navigation systems, will introduce its second generation Implantology ( IGI) Implantology System (IGI) next week during the EAO Congress in Genevathe company announced today.

The IGI system brings the precision of navigation and safety of robotic tools to the field of implant dentistry. The new robotic auto-stop feature stops the drill when it is out of its planned trajectory or position, allowing for robotic operation without the robot. The basis of the auto-stop function is the high-precision tracking system developed by Image Navigation with no observable delay.

The connection between patient and system developed by Image Navigation enables a smooth and efficient workflow at the patient chair without compromising submillimeter accuracy. This allows the surgeon to focus on the patient instead of constantly monitoring the connector for movement or rotation. The system allows for both same-day examination, planning and surgery, as well as surgery at a later date after computed tomography, without compromising accuracy.

Lawrence Obstfeld , CEO of Image Navigation, stated: “Our IGI 2.0 is a Waze for implant dentistry that offers the highest accuracy in implant surgery together with the safety of robotics - without a large and expensive robot at the operating room. The surgeon navigates in real time according to the plan made before the operation. The auto-stop feature shuts down the drill if it doesn't follow the on-screen indicators. The new IGI 2.0 marks the beginning of an exciting era in navigated and robotic dentistry."

The IGI expands the use of dental 3D CT scans from diagnosis and planning through to the actual surgical procedure. The pre-operative CT image is displayed as a detailed map on the screen, allowing the surgeon precise real-time visualization of the direction, position and depth of the bur tip. The current global installed base of 120,000 dental CT scanners represents an investment of approximately $5 billion.

IGI version 2.0 is expected to hit the European market in the first half of 2023.

Image Navigation Ltd. will be exhibiting the new IGI 2.0 at the European Academy for Osseointegration Congress at Palexpo Geneva, Switzerland, from September 29th to October 1st at stand H31.
