Neurosurgery is fluctuating by nature. A preoperatively acquired data set may be outdated only minutes after surgery begins due to various associated factors. Intraoperative updates of data are essential in neurosurgery. While most preoperative images are either CT or MR, data sets may also be updated using intraoperative ultrasound. Brainlab ultrasound integration features live anatomical images that are overlaid directly onto preoperative data.
Brainlab Ultrasound Integration upgrades any compatible 2D ultrasound system with 3D functionality. The Brainlab open-platform technology offers facilities more ultrasound choices as the navigation system integrates with a multitude of ultrasound probes from multiple vendors.
