WSSFN 2017

17th Quadrennial Meeting of the World Society for Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery


The theme of this year’s 17th Quadrennial Meeting of the World Society for Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery is “Emerging Techniques and Indications”.


In line with this year’s theme, Brainlab presents Elements Stereotaxy, the successor software to the longstanding and widely-used stereotactic planning software, iPlan Stereotaxy.

Elements Stereotaxy is packed with a wide range of features, making this application unique on the market. Elements Stereotaxy combines patient-specific Anatomical Mapping, Fibertracking, 3D shapes for trajectories, Boston Scientific DBS lead models, as well as the integration of stereotactic frames, including the new Leksell® Vantage™ Stereotactic System from Elekta.


With Elements Lead Localization, the stereotactic procedure extends beyond pre-op planning and continues after surgery. DBS leads are automatically detected in CT scans with contacts visualized in relation to the patient’s anatomy, supporting more straightforward programming.


Brainlab works closely with two key partners Elekta and Boston Scientific. Three powerful and innovative solutions to improve and speed-up the stereotactic workflow for deep brain stimulation (DBS) procedures. From pre-case planning with Brainlab Elements to surgery with Elekta stereotactic frames to implantation of Boston Scientific devices, together the entire DBS workflow is addressed.
