The Imaging Wand is a useful tool used in Neurosurgery. The neurosurgeon can navigate with precision within the skull and locate lesions even few millimeters in size. With proper pre-surgical planning the surgical opening into the cranial cavity is smaller and patients often have less pain after the operation. The ability to localize lesions and their structural relationship to surronding blood vessels or cerebral structures has enhanced microsurgical techniques.
The image below offers the neurosurgeon a 3-dimensional view of the area of interest.
