Paper Abstract

To meet the high accuracy demands of most brain lesion resection surgeries, surgeons are always looking out for new and more reliable guiding systems and methods. In this paper we are presenting a system that has been developed through many years of experience in brain surgery and hundreds of stereotactic brain lesion resection operations. The computer assisted system consists of a special designed software and hardware. The software starts by collect the data directly from different types of imaging systems, then using several modules of interactive 2D-3D graphic displays enables the surgeon to simulate, optimize, and plan the surgery. The hardware consists two main parts. The first part is a localizing unit with a set of instrument, that provide the reference system needed for the imaging data preoperatively and intraoperatively. The second part is an intraoperative automated image guided system for microscopic based resection cases.
