Experiences and future aspects of neuronavigation
Ships have arrived at their destination harbours before GPS and intracranial lesions have been operated before neuronavigation systems. The question is: Do we need navigation for intracranial procedures and did it have a major impact in the development of neurosurgical techniques? Technological advances in imaging and computerized systems have improved accuracy. The result is that for both — ships and patients — the journey became safe.
