iNtelligent Image Guidance System

Stryker Image Guidance System

The ENT Department at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital has acquired the very latest in "Image Guided Surgery" equipment.  The Stryker iNtellect ENT Navigtion System uses data obtained from CT scans to allow the surgeon to accurately position instruments and conduct surgery in delicate parts of the head and neck.  This equipment is particularly useful in complex sinus surgery and skull base surgery.

Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is the only provider in Gloucestershire to offer this service to patients.  In addition Gloucestershire is the only site in the UK where this equipment is directly linked to the computerised Radiology PACS system, allowing direct download of CT images.
