Abstract

The development of neuronavigation has been a history of a stereotactic procedure which was recognized as a basic concept of minimally invasive neurosurgery. The reduction of the operation and elimination of unnecessary procedures neuronavigation reduces blood loss and complications, and expands the operative indications in more difficult cases. It is a new eye for surgeons, in its ability to recognize and observe accurately the target organ and brain structures during surgery. Surgeons need to have a strategic system which consists of augmented functional reality and an image space (virtual space) in which the images of the navigator are analyzed and integrated. These analyzed navigation images are based on medical images and operative information. According to the conditions, which may change, doctors can discuss via the common image space details about simulation, navigation and a new strategy while in an operating theater.
