This study enrolls people who will be having a neurosurgical procedure on their spine or head. The purpose of this study is to learn how well an image guided surgery system called the 7D Surgical System works in neurosurgical (spine and cranial) procedures.

We want to learn about its accuracy, setup time, and effect on the amount of radiation used during operations. Read More
