Stereotactic Systems, Image-Guided, Surgical, Spinal
Definition : Image-guided stereotactic computer-aided surgical systems designed to aid in the performance of minimally invasive spinal procedures by combining medical imaging, dedicated computer software, and surgical instrument tracking systems for guidance. The systems provide surgeons with real-time, three-dimensional (3-D) positioning and orientation of surgical instruments relative to the patient's anatomy on a video display during the spinal surgery without the use of an endoscope. One or more imaging modalities, such as computed tomography (CT) and/or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), may be used in the procedure. Spinal image-guided surgical systems are used in many procedures, including tumor resection, spinal fusion, pedicle screw placement, laminectomies and discectomies. Some systems include software capabilities to make possible spinal trauma procedures.
