guided surgery navigation system for neurosurgery
Protocol: STUDY00004621
Full Title
A single-center prospective study of a machine-vision image guided surgery navigation system for neurosurgery
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. Image guided surgery systems are like a Global Position System (GPS). They use cameras to show surgical tools moving in relation to the patient’s body on computer monitors in the operating room. We want to learn about its accuracy, setup time, and effect on the amount of radiation used during operations.

We expect that you will be in this research study for a few days until you are discharged from the hospital after your surgery. You will not be asked to do anything besides have your regular care. This study takes place at Gates Vascular Institute in Buffalo, NY.
