Stereotactic Systems, Image-Guided, Surgical, Multiprocedure
Definition : Image-guided computer-aided surgical systems designed to aid in the performance a variety of minimally invasive surgical procedures by combining medical imaging, several dedicated computer software packages, and a surgical instrument tracking systems for guidance. These 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 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. Dedicated multipurpose image-guided systems intended for two or more specialties (e.g., cranial neurosurgery, orthopedics, spinal, otorhinolaryngology) are available. Dedicated software packages are frequently needed for each of the specialties, including software intended for trauma surgery procedures.
