What Is Neuronavigation?
Neuronavigation is a technique used in neurosurgery to guide surgical instruments and interventions to specific areas of the brain or spinal cord. It involves the use of advanced imaging techniques, such as MRI or CT scans, to create a 3D model of the patient’s brain or spine, which is then loaded into a computer system. The computer system is then used to track the location of surgical instruments in real time, allowing surgeons to navigate and operate on specific areas with greater precision and accuracy. Neuronavigation has greatly improved the safety and outcomes of neurosurgery by reducing the risk of damage to critical structures and improving surgical outcomes.
