  • Descripción del producto
    BrainLAB's VectorVision spine is intended for use as an intraoperative image-guided localization system for minimally invasive surgery. It links a freehand probe, tracked by a passive marker sensor system to virtual computer image space on a patient's preoperative image data that is processed by a VectorVision workstation. || The system is indicated for any medical condition in which the use of stereoscopic surgery may be appropriate and where a reference to a rigid anatomical structure, such as the skull, the pelvis, a long bone or vertebra can be identified relative to a CT, x-ray, or MR-based model of the anatomy.
