Synaptive Medical and Stryker’s Advanced Guidance Technologies business (formerly known as Stryker’s Navigation business)  announced a strategic partnership in surgical planning and surgical guidance.

Through the partnership, Stryker will offer Synaptive’s BrightMatter™ Plan software, which automatically generates high-fidelity, dynamic, whole-brain tractography. Surgeons can easily review tracts and explore multiple surgical approaches to create powerful pre-operative plans—for every case. Tractography can be used, without disrupting surgical workflow, to confirm the data is concordant with the intended approach and determine whether detailed surgical planning is required. Then, the surgical plans can be easily exported for navigation in the operating room.

BrightMatter Plan is the only tractography offering that is automated and whole-brain. Other solutions on the market require a neuroradiologist or other tractography expert to generate tracts, which is both time consuming and a road block for surgeons.

“Stryker is a leader in surgical technologies, including surgical guidance, with a strong global customer base that values Synaptive’s thought leadership in neurosurgical planning and tractography,” said Peter Wehrly, CEO of Synaptive Medical. “Through this partnership, we look forward to working together to establish automated whole brain tractography as the gold standard of patient care.”
