New guidance system could improve minimally invasive surgery
Date:3/27/2014

gh-quality minimally invasive surgery," he says. "But conventional navigation systems can present a major cost barrier and a bottleneck to workflow. This system could provide accurate navigation with simple systems that are already in the OR and with a sophisticated registration algorithm under the hood."

Ziya Gokaslan, M.D., a professor of neurosurgery at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, is leading the translational research team. "We are already seeing how intraoperative imaging can be used to enhance workflow and improve patient safety," he says. "Extending those methods to the task of surgical navigation is very promising, and it could open the availability of high-precision guidance to a broader spectrum of surgeries than previously available."
