To differentiate healthy tissue from tumor cells, or treat an aneurysm for example, the surgeon needs a complete picture of the surgical area. Supplementary information provided by Image Guided Surgery (IGS) or neuro navigation systems, endoscope, and in some cases fluorescence, can support the surgeon’s visualization, insight and intra-surgical orientation. This supplementary visual information is often only viewable on a separate screen, but with image injection technology from Leica it can be overlaid in full high definition (HD) directly into the eyepieces of a surgical microscope. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/full-hd-image-injection-provides-a-complete-picture-of-the-surgical-site-directly-in-the-microscope-eyepieces/ Mon, 20 Mar 2017 12:54:00 +0000 Kerstin Pingel https://www.leica-microsystems.com/9474 Surgical Microscopy Navigating Through the Brain One of the challenges of neurosurgery is orientation at the surgical site. When resecting tumors, removing arteriovenous malformations, or clipping aneurysms, surgeons often have to work near healthy and functional brain tissue. When resecting the tumor, the challenge is always to spare as much healthy tissue as possible. Neuronavigation technology, also referred to as Image Guided Surgery (IGS) enables surgeons to plan the ideal approach before making a cut and helps to execute that plan by providing intraoperative orientation. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/navigating-through-the-brain/ Mon, 20 Mar 2017 12:52:00 +0000 Kerstin Pingel, Valentin Elefteriu
