Application: Robot surgical platform (Patent ID: US20230397956A1)

The patent filed by Globus Medical Inc. describes a surgical implant planning computer that is connected to a fluoroscopy imager, a marker tracking camera, and a robot. The computer performs operations such as determining conditions for tracking markers and obtaining intra-operative fluoroscopic images of a patient along different planes. It also allows for the selection and display of surgical implants on the fluoroscopic images, controlling the orientation and location of the implants, and storing this information in a surgical plan data structure.

The claims associated with the patent detail the specific functions of the surgical implant planning computer, including displaying graphical implants on fluoroscopic images, controlling their orientation and location, selecting implant lengths, and moving the robot arm based on the surgical plan data structure. The method outlined in the claims involves performing a registration setup mode, obtaining intra-operative fluoroscopic images, selecting and displaying surgical implants, controlling their orientation, and storing relevant data in a surgical plan data structure. Additionally, the computer program product described in the patent includes executable program code for performing these operations, determining implant trajectories, and storing implant information in the surgical plan data structure based on user inputs.
