Overview

An excellent account of the developments which have occurred in neuro-navigation, with thought-provoking insights into the wider applications of equipment...-Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry

Today neurological surgery stands at a technological crossroad. Revolutionary advances in high-speed graphic computers, informatics, biotechnology, and robotics continue to change the field and open vast new possibilities for improved patient care.

In this new book, the advances at work in everyday patient care, as well as revolutionary new systems, now under development are chronicled by the world-renowned team of neurosurgeons, computer scientists, software engineers and others who have led the technological transformations. The book includes full information on transferring medical data into mapping strategies, viewing the clinical applications of stereotaxis, and observing fascinating new image-guided neurosurgical procedures in actual clinical practice. Most importantly, there is a full comparison of the different systems now in use so that the surgeon can make intelligent decisions about which to purchase.

Special features include:

  • Innovative computer models that show normal neuroanatomy and its pathologic alterations in exquisite three-dimensional detail
  • The value of fusing state-of-the-art imaging modalities to localize targets for stereotactic neurosurgery, including functional mapping of speech and motor areas, tumor localization, etc.
  • Advanced intraoperative imaging techniques, including modern adaptations of stereotactic frames and real-time imaging (e.g. ultrasound, intraoperative MRI and CT)
  • The potential of robotic manipulation in cutting edge imaging environments
  • The pros and cons of many of the advanced neurosurgical navigation systems now in use and how each fits your needs

The results of the new technology? Enormous improvements in surgical planning, execution, safety, and overall patient management — plus flexibility in developing successful combination strategies that incorporate surgery with advanced neurosurgical and radiosurgical techniques.

Complete with 547 illustrations, including 170 in full-color, the book goes further than any current work in documenting the evolution of modern neurosurgical navigation. All neurosurgeons, especially those working in modern intracranial, spinal and peripheral nerve techniques, will find it invaluable, as will neuroradiologists, radiation oncologists, general surgeons, and biomedical engineers. For the next generation in image-guided neurosurgery, this state-of-the-art work contains information not found elsewhere.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

This color atlas presents the next generation of image-guided neurosurgery. Clinically oriented, the book focuses on the application of image-guided neurosurgery to specific clinical problems.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
This excellent text addresses a very timely subject..well illustrated and readable..Any neurosurgeon with an interest in the application of modern technology to the practice of his or her craft will find this book a worthwhile investment..I would recommend this book to residents, practicing neurosurgeons, and allied scientists of all types. —NeurosurgeryAn excellent account of the developments which have occurred in neuro-navigation, with thought-provoking insights into the wider applications of equipment.. —Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and PsychiatryA well written and beautifully illustrated book..provides neurosurgery residents, fellows, and even attending physicians with the most essential information on an exploding field of neurosurgery..the information contained between its covers cannot be so concisely and accurately found in any other source. —Journal of Neurosurgery
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Qasim Bashir, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This book, unique in style and concepts, is a comprehensive overview of the current and future role of the state-of-the-art neuroimaging in neurosurgical practice.
Purpose: The purpose is to encompass the ever-increasing role of technology into neurosurgical practice. The editors systematically highlight the advances made in neurosurgical imaging a century ago and then not only limits their presentation to the present diagnostic modalities but go a step further to foresee the future modifications and utilization. The editors' objectives, apart from being worthy, have indeed been achieved in the book.
Audience: From both the editors' and my perspective, this book is primarily intended for residents, research fellows in neurosciences, and for practitioners in neurosurgery, neurology, neuroradiology, and interventional radiology. This is a "must read" book especially for residents in neurosurgery, neurology, and radiology. Apart from being highly respected in the field, the editors hold tremendous authority in the subject matter of the book.
Features: The interaction between the computer revolution, all pervasive in this modern era, with the more ancient practice of surgery of the human brain, has been remarkably covered in this book. By tracing the history of stereostactic frame development to its present clinical utilization, the editors cover in depth the wide spread usage of computer graphic technology (i.e., CT Scanners, various MR imaging modalities, ultrasonography, etc.) in operative arms, microscopes, and endoscopes. The reader friendly typeface and illustrations add tremendously to the uniqueness of this book.
Assessment: Imaging of the brain is one of the most rapidly advancing areas in neuroscience. Apart from the major recent developments in neurosurgical navigation, the editors beautifully highlight the endless emerging possibilities for neurosurgeons in this book by interpreting the marriage of advanced computerized image processing with the guidance of surgical procedures within the brain. It is a known fact that technology has contributed immensely to diagnosis and accuracy in neurosurgery, but this book surely opens new windows of thought for readers.
