BrainLab combines navigation, US systems for neurosurgery

Radiotherapy firm BrainLab has integrated its VectorVision surgical navigation system with the IGSonic ultrasound system, enabling neurosurgeons to use intraoperative ultrasound.

Ultrasound information collected during an operation is displayed on the navigation system's screen, giving a 3D rendering of tumor boundaries. The high-precision imagery allows surgeons to remove tumor tissue as completely as possible without damaging nearby healthy tissue, according to Munich, Germany-based BrainLab.
