Labelled by three competitiveness clusters (Medicen, Systematic, Images & Réseaux), the IRIMI project (“Imageur Robotisé pour les Interventions Minimalement Invasives “ i.e Robotic imager for minimally invasive surgeries) carried the ambition to demonstrate the feasibility of a robotic imaging system that meets the needs for interventional and surgical imaging. Indeed it aimed at designing a mobile imaging system to guide minimally invasive surgeries.
The Discovery IGS 730, robot marketed by GE Healthcare, is born of the IRIMI project and meets the hybridization needs of radiation and surgery rooms. Equipped with a 3D imaging system on a C-shaped arm, itself supported by an automated guided vehicle developed by BA Systèmes, the Discovery can acquire patient images during minimally invasive interventions, in cardiovascular surgery and oncology.
