STUDY AIMS The purpose of this study was the integration of three-dimensional ultrasound data into a neuronavigation system, in order to allow a guided intraoperative resection control during neurosurgical interventions. MATERIAL AND METHODS A system for iterative neuronavigation based on 3D-ultrasound (US) has been developed. The main components of the system are the ultrasound device Voluson 730 (GE Healthcare) with a 5 - 9 MHz probe, the navigation system VectorVision2 (BrainLAB AG) and a… CONTINUE READING
