Utah Patent of the Month – April 2024

OrthoGrid Systems, Inc. has been granted a patent for their new approach to intra-operative surgical guidance. Their artificial intelligence (AI) based system is not just innovative; it’s a game-changer in the field of orthopedic surgery.

The system aims to make it easier than ever for surgeons to accurately predict surgical outcomes in real-time, minimizing the risk of errors and maximizing patient safety. By harnessing the power of AI, their system provides surgeons with invaluable insights and guidance throughout the surgical process.

At the heart of OrthoGrid’s invention lies a sophisticated software module comprised of three layers: the data layer, the algorithm layer, and the application layer. This multi-layered approach ensures comprehensive analysis and decision-making, making it a robust tool for surgeons.

One of the most impressive features of OrthoGrid’s system is its ability to calculate intra-operative surgical decision risks. By applying advanced classifier algorithms to a multitude of intra-operative fluoroscopic medical images, the system can accurately assess the likelihood of various outcomes, empowering surgeons to make informed decisions.

But it doesn’t stop there. OrthoGrid’s system also includes an array of modules designed to enhance image quality, correct distortions, annotate anatomical landmarks, and even estimate three-dimensional shapes of implants or anatomy. This level of precision and detail is unprecedented in the realm of surgical guidance systems.

What truly sets OrthoGrid’s invention apart is its dynamic guidance indicator. By generating predictive maps and aligning intra-operative images with grid templates, the system provides real-time feedback to surgeons, indicating optimal positioning for implants or bone alignment. This level of guidance not only improves surgical accuracy but also reduces the risk of complications post-surgery.

OrthoGrid’s system is equipped with outcome prediction models trained on extensive datasets. These models enable the system to forecast surgical outcomes with remarkable accuracy, giving surgeons the confidence to proceed with their procedures.
