EasyGuide Neuro: A New Approach to Image-Guided Surgery

  • Manfred Baur
Conference paper


The EasyGuide Neuro system has been designed to support modern microneurosurgery. It allows for precise craniotomy and path planning and is a valuable tool to correlate the information contained within digital medical images (CT or MR images) with the patient’s anatomy. EasyGuide Neuro provides information on the three-dimensional situation in the patient, minimizing the risk of damaging vital structures by giving precise local information.
