Neuronavigation provides intraoperative orientation to the surgeon, helps in planning a precise surgical approach to the targetted lesion and defines the surrounding neurovascular structures. Incorporation of the functional data provided by functional MRI and magnetoencephalography (MEG) with neuronavigation helps to avoid the eloquent areas of the brain during surgery

Medtronic neurosurgery imaging and neuronavigation systems enable surgeons to visualize the anatomy of a patient’s brain during surgery and precisely track the location of their surgical instruments in relation to the anatomy – even accommodating for the brain shift that occurs during surgery. Using these Medtronic technologies during procedures like tumor resections, surgeons can navigate more precisely, perform less-invasive procedures, and help improve clinical outcomes.
