Empower your decision-making with Augmented Reality

The ARveo microscope integrates the supplementary imaging information you need to make precise, confident decisions. Enhance your understanding with IGS data and our propriety GLOW Augmented Reality (AR) technology.

Building on a decade of leadership in fluorescence imaging, GLOW AR is ready to revolutionize the way you navigate your most challenging neurosurgical procedures.

A sophisticated imaging sensor and algorithms capture, optimize, and combine multiple spectral bands of visible and fluorescent light. The result is faithful, natural coloring of tissue and accurate representation of fluorescence intensity.

Our first modality is GLOW800* AR fluorescence, but this is just the start: GLOW AR technology is future-ready. Choose ARveo with built-in GLOW800* AR fluorescence, then simply upgrade as soon as the next modality is launched.

Augment your vascular neurosurgery

GLOW800* augmented reality (AR) fluorescence is the first fluorescence modality based on GLOW AR technology. Used in combination with ICG, it allows you to observe cerebral anatomy in natural color, augmented by real-time vascular flow, with full depth perception.

One complete picture without interruption

  • A single, real-time view means no more need to recall and try to reconcile black and white NIR blood flow video with the natural anatomical view
  • Full depth perception and no dark peripheries through image homogenization supports clear spatial orientation
  • Whether AVM, aneurysm, bypass, or microvascular decompression, you always have the full view you need to confidently work in GLOW800* mode

Choose to view on 4K 3D screens

The ARveo gives you options.

Choose how you prefer to view digital and augmented reality imaging information: In the eyepieces or on 4K 3D monitors.

  • Select the 31-inch 4K 3D monitor for easy mounting on the microscope or on a mobile cart system.
  • For an even more flexible and immersive experience in the OR add a cart-mounted 55-inch 4K 3D monitor.

GLOW800* cannot be viewed in 3D.

Choose to view in the eyepieces

Prefer not to take your eyes off your patient to look at a screen during surgery?

With CaptiView image injection you see the imaging information you need in the highest resolution, directly in the eyepieces.

  • CaptiView displays GLOW AR fluorescence, IGS data from leading manufacturers, microscope information, and additional input streams thanks to the OpenArchitecture design
  • 1080p full HD display with LED backlight delivers high-resolution, high-contrast images so good there’s no need to break concentration to look at a screen 

Share your view in 3D

While the ARveo microscope is built to empower your decision-making, we recognize that you also want to strengthen the skills of your team.

  • CaptiView image injection allows your assistant to also view digital imaging directly in their eyepieces
  • 3D visualization on screen can help improve your students’ understanding of complex cases and may even increase knowledge retention
  • Shared 3D viewing on large 4K monitors helps support workflow by enabling your whole team to follow your every delicate move 

FusionOptics makes the previously impossible, possible

The ARveo microscope has groundbreaking optical innovation at its heart: FusionOptics. Uniting an enhanced depth of field with high resolution, FusionOptics technology delivers unsurpassed visualization. When combined with 400 W xenon light and Small Angle Illumination, the result is a deep, bright view, in full focus.

The Technology of FusionOptics

  1. Two separate beam paths:
  2. One beam path provides high resolution.
  3. The other beam path provides depth of field.
  4. The brain merges the two images to a single optimal spatial image.

A decade of pioneering fluorescence

Leica Microsystems has been leading the way in fluorescence technology for more than 10 years. This dedication has enabled us to remain at the forefront of new developments.

Our latest innovation, GLOW800* AR fluorescence, plus two other fluorescence filters can be fully integrated into the ARveo microscope.

Switching between white light and fluorescence or between fluorescence modes requires just a few clicks.

FL400 fluorescence

FL400 blue light fluorescence is available in the USA as a Class I device.

It aids differentiation of tissue types as areas that have accumulated fluorophores glow bright red or pink and other tissue appears blue.

FL560 fluorescence

FL560 was the first FDA 510(k)-cleared filter for fluorescence visualization of fluorophores with a peak between ~460 nm and ~500 nm.

It allows simultaneous observation of natural-colored anatomy and fluorescent areas, which glow a bright yellowish-green color. 

GLOW800* AR fluorescence

GLOW800* AR fluorescence takes the high contrast of NIR imaging with ICG and combines it with white light for a single view of natural-colored anatomy augmented by real-time vascular flow.

 

 

Ingenious ergonomics

The ARveo microscope has been thoughtfully designed to adapt to your preferred style of working and body frame.

Positioned for your comfort

  • Flexible use of long instruments thanks to large 600 mm working distance
  • Effortless adaptation to different body frames with a choice of binoculars all with 360° rotation and versatile positioning of the optics carrier
  • Optimal visualization for rear assistant with independent fine focus
  • Lightweight handling and extensive range of movement of the optics carrier limits potential strain from harsh movements

 

 

Workflows that simply flow

A leap forward in technology is only useful if it’s used. With ergonomics and efficiency factored into every design decision, from software to switch, you can experience all the benefits of augmented reality-enhanced surgery, without interrupting workflow.

  • Single-button auto-balance enables fast, simple pre-operative and intra-operative balancing
  • Fast set-up pre-surgery with integrated one-touch drape air removal system that works with multiple surgical drapes
  • Integrated digital AR technologies and recording systems are easily controlled via handle, wireless footswitch or new multi-directional mouthswitch for uninterrupted working

Made to withstand

The premium overhead stand from our partner Mitaka was designed and built for intensive, flexible use in the operating room.

Inspired by aerospace technology, it has a robust full-metal construction with long reach and a compact footprint.
