NuVasive Inc. (NSDQ:NUVA) said today it launched its LessRay software platform designed to reduced exposure to radiation in hospital operating rooms.

The San Diego, Calif.-based company said the LessRay system is comprised of a proprietary software algorithm and hardware components, and is initially focused on minimally invasive spinal surgeries.

“The launch of LessRay is a significant milestone for NuVasive, as we begin to sell capital equipment and bring technology advancements into the hospital O.R.. With LessRay’s ability to dramatically reduce radiation exposure, as well as its enhanced imaging capability, we are now executing on our imaging and navigation strategy to improve spine surgery productivity and ultimately predictability. Given the healthy pipeline of interest from customers already, the strong demand demonstrates a critical need for a solution like LessRay to address a major safety issue related to radiation facing surgeons and hospital administrators,” chair & CEO Gregory Lucier said in a press release.

Earlier this month, NuVasive said it acquired Vertera Spine and its interbody implants for an undisclosed amount.
