Image Guided Neurosurgery Book Review:

Image-guided neuosurgery will probably be a very significant advance in neurological surgery during this decade. Using digitizers, computers and video, the neurosurgeon is able to exactly locate an area for incision, biopsy or surgery. In addition, intraoperatively, the surgeon is able to visualize (on a video monitor) a 2D or 3D image of a specific lesion.

Intraoperative Imaging and Image Guided Therapy Book Review:

Image-guided therapy (IGT) uses imaging to improve the localization and targeting of diseased tissue and to monitor and control treatments. During the past decade, image-guided surgeries and image-guided minimally invasive interventions have emerged as advances that can be used in place of traditional invasive approaches. Advanced imaging technologies such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), and positron emission tomography (PET) entered into operating rooms and interventional suites to complement already-available routine imaging devices like X-ray and ultrasound. At the same time, navigational tools, computer-assisted surgery devices, and image-guided robots also became part of the revolution in interventional radiology suites and the operating room. Intraoperative Imaging and Image-Guided Therapy explores the fundamental, technical, and clinical aspects of state-of the-art image-guided therapies. It presents the basic concepts of image guidance, the technologies involved in therapy delivery, and the special requirements for the design and construction of image-guided operating rooms and interventional suites. It also covers future developments such as molecular imaging-guided surgeries and novel innovative therapies like MRI-guided focused ultrasound surgery. IGT is a multidisciplinary and multimodality field in which teams of physicians, physicists, engineers, and computer scientists collaborate in performing these interventions, an approach that is reflected in the organization of the book. Contributing authors include members of the National Center of Image-Guided Therapy program at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and international leaders in the field of IGT. The book includes coverage of these topics: - Imaging methods, guidance technologies, and the therapy delivery systems currently used or in development. - Clinical applications for IGT in various specialties such as neurosurgery, ear-nose-and-throat surgery, cardiovascular surgery, endoscopies, and orthopedic procedures. - Review and comparison of the clinical uses for IGT with conventional methods in terms of invasiveness, effectiveness, and outcome. - Requirements for the design and construction of image-guided operating rooms and interventional suites.

Improving the Accuracy of Image guided Neurosurgical Tools for Brain Tumour Resections Book Review:

"Each year, thousands of Canadians undergo neurosurgery to areas of the brain that are critical to movement, vision, sensation, language and other cognitive functions. Recent literature demonstrates a significantly increased survival benefit with complete resection of primary and secondary brain tumours. Image guided neurosurgery correlates preoperative diagnostic patient images with the patient on the operating room table by using a patient-to-image registration and localizing and tracking the patient and a set of surgical instruments. There are many different types of errors that can arise during image-guided interventions related to technical, physical and biological factors that largely influence the accuracy of these systems and make them unreliable as the intervention progresses or when caution is not taken to minimize their effect.In the following dissertation, I explore the variety of different sources of errors that affect the accuracy of image-guided neurosurgical systems and establish ways in which some of them can be minimized to maximize the accuracy of these systems throughout a procedure. We begin by performing an exhaustive review of the work done investigating different sources of these errors and develop a taxonomy to better classify the sources of these errors and the state of the art techniques that aim to minimize these errors. Next, the contribution to localization, registration, and calibration errors from optical tracking systems and landmark-based registration procedures used in image-guided neurosurgery is quantified and we give suggestions to minimize their error contribution. Positioning of tools, tracking cameras and the selection of landmarks for patient-to-image registration are all important factors involved in minimizing the baseline inaccuracy contributions from image-guided neurosurgery hardware and can have major implications on system accuracy if care is not taken when using or performing them. Additionally, we explore the use of intraoperative ultrasound and augmented reality to compensate for physiological inaccuracies introduced through the phenomenon of brain shift and to maintain a high level of accuracy throughout an image-guided procedure. Finally, we show that intraoperative ultrasound is a useful tool for compensating for some of the misalignment issues when using augmented reality visualization and augmented reality complements the ultrasound by having more easily interpretable images for intraoperative visualization.The results of the error minimizing techniques described in this dissertation suggest that with continued development, and by exercising caution while setting up and using the technology image-guided surgery can realize its potential in providing a highly accurate navigation tool to assist with complicated surgeries. While complete resection has been shown to correlate with survival, the patient's quality of life is often weighed into the decision of resection extent leading to a "maximal safe resection" that sometimes results in incomplete tumour removal. With continued development and improved accuracy, these systems have the potential to be relied upon for longer durations of an operation and may push the boundaries of maximal safe resections." --

Intraoperative Imaging Book Review:

Intraoperative imaging technologies have taken an ever-increasing role in the daily practice of neurosurgeons and the increasing attention and interest necessitated international interaction and collaboration. The Intraoperative Imaging Society was formed in 2007. This book brings together highlights from the second meeting of the Intraoperative Imaging Society, which took place in Istanbul-Turkey from June 14 to 17, 2009. Included within the contents of the book is an overview of the emergence and development of the intraoperative imaging technology as well as a glimpse on where the technology is heading. This is followed by in detail coverage of intraoperative MRI technology and sections on intraoperative CT and ultrasonography. There are also sections on multimodality integration, intraoperative robotics and other intraoperative technologies. We believe that this book will provide an up-to date and comprehensive general overview of the current intraoperative imaging technology as well as detailed discussions on individual techniques and clinical results.
