UCSF Medical Center Treats Patients with New Brainlab Curve™ Image Guided Surgery
Date:4/16/2012

CHICAGO, April 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Brainlab, a leader in software-driven medical technology, announced today the first patient procedures with Curve™ Image Guided Surgery at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) Medical Center's Neuro-Oncology Clinic. UCSF surgeons rely on Curve for advanced neurosurgery procedures to help detect and remove brain tumors and other disorders.

UCSF Medical Center is one of the top hospitals in the nation in neurology and neurosurgery with the largest brain tumor treatment program in the United States. The Center has led many advances in treatments, including brain mapping, which has significantly improved the outcome for patients with brain and spinal cord tumors. Brain mapping enables doctors to remove as much of a tumor as possible while minimizing the impact on the crucial areas of the brain that control movement, speech and the senses.

Mitchel S. Berger, MD, FACS, FAANS, an internationally renowned expert in the treatment of brain and spinal cord tumors, chairman of the department of neurological surgery at UCSF and upcoming new president of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS), comments on the implementation of Curve at UCSF Medical Center:

"By using advanced image-guided navigation technology like Curve by Brainlab, we are able to better apply our brain mapping technique on patients. Curve enables us [surgeons] to more accurately target tumor dissection down to the smallest degree by providing high definition screens and inline views that are just beautiful. This helps to improve our ultimate goal of removing all or most of the tumor without producing permanent neurological deficit in the patient."

Curve features the latest image guidance software powering advanced 3D displays and hallmark Brainlab image enrichment. This advanced technology allows ultra-fast image updating when tracking instruments, which promotes intra-operative confidence.
