What Is Neuro-Navigation?
Neuro-Navigation is among the revolutionary, computer-assisted technologies in the field of Neurosurgery that helps surgeons to achieve the precise location of an affected tissue during and before the surgical procedure. Sometimes, patients suffer from critical medical conditions and hence require to undergo surgical removal of the affected tissues which can be either in a skull base, brain or spinal cord. But such complex medical treatments like removal of tissues, etc. can affect functional areas of the brain. Surgeons need to ensure minimum damage to such areas. For this, they must have precision and accurate access to data about the location of instruments and tissue. This is where Neuro-Navigation creeps in. It helps surgeons to locate the mathematical model of the concerned tissue or the focal point of the instrument. The image gets updated as the surgeon proceeds with the treatment or operation. It is only after achieving perfect orientation in the field that accurate as well as the safe removal of tissue takes place. Thus, the role of Neuro-Navigation is to improve the efficiency level of the Neuro-surgical procedures.
Many technologies such as Angiography, Computed Tomography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, ECoG, etc. have been used for Stereotactic Radiosurgery and also Brain Mapping. Neuro-Navigation procedure may use any of such sophisticated imaging technologies with the right tools so that surgeon can get three-dimensional images of the anatomy of patient, before as well as during the surgical procedure. The field of Neuro-Navigation is expected to evolve by incorporating more technologically advanced imaging techniques and tools in the time to come.
Application of Neuro-Navigation can be found during various situations such as Pituitary surgery, Brain tumor resection, Brain biopsy, Neuro-pathology, etc.
Thus, Neuro-Navigation serves as a boon for patients suffering from critical conditions from brain tumors to epilepsy, to name a few. It helps the surgeon to plan a precise surgical approach. Successful and safe medical treatments require quality-oriented medical equipments and a complete set-up.
