Software, Stereotactic System, Image-Guided Biopsy
Definition : Stereotactic system software designed to operate image guided, computer-aided biopsy systems and control/monitor their functions. This software is usually intended to work only with one or a few models of stereotactic systems, usually supplied by the same manufacturer. The software performs a variety of algorithms to make possible the appropriate performance of the system during a biopsy or surgical procedure and to facilitate the sending/receiving of patient data from and to a workstation and/or imaging and information systems. Image-guided stereotactic system software is frequently available separate from the surgical system and may be also updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the surgical system. Dedicated image-guided surgical system software is available for a variety of different surgical applications.
