Brainlab developed the device in partnership with Austrian conebeam CT (CBCT) technology developer MedPhoton; Brainlab provided funding for the technology, invested in the Salzburg-based company, and became the exclusive distributor of Loop-X imaging robot in surgery.

Loop-X offers 2D and 3D imaging and features ultrahigh resolution for soft-tissue visualization with low radiation dose. Nonisocentric movement and collimation capabilities provide imaging of structures that are larger in diameter and in greater detail than conventional CT scanners or 3D C-arms and with less radiation exposure to patients.
