AI-assisted neuro surgery performed at Hyderabad KIMS

The AI-based device, manufactured by SKIA, a South Korea-based medical device firm, provides digital guides for surgeries based on cutting-edge technologies.



HYDERABAD: Touted to be the first in the country, KIMS Hospital has introduced a device, based on AI and Augmented Reality (AR) technologies, for brain tumor surgeries.


The device, manufactured by SKIA, a South Korea-based medical device firm, provides digital guides for surgeries based on cutting-edge technologies. Although the scanning device has been in use to detect tumors, such a device is being used for the first time for neurosurgery, a release said.


Dr Manas Panigrahi, HoD (neurosurgery) & senior consultant, KIMS Hospital, Secunderabad, performed 16 brain tumor surgeries using the SKIA device. He said, “This is proving to be very useful in brain surgeries. Unlike conventional methods that rely on neuro-navigation systems, this device use the power of AR and AI to offer a more flexible and intuitive approach.”


Tim Kim, Chief Marketing Officer, SKIA, said, “The device revolutionises surgical navigation and patient education through its markerless AR technology. By utilising harmless lasers, the device scans the patient’s body to create an exact 3D digital copy. This is then analysed by the device’s AI to recognise vital structures from the patient’s CT data. Then, the AI aligns the CT model with the patient’s body, allowing for the projection of detailed 3D medical images.”
