The way microscopes are used in the O.R. is in transition: Brainlab accommodates neurosurgeons’ needs in both the traditional approach of looking through the ocular as well as the more recent utilization of exoscope video images displayed on a dedicated screen. Reflective markers attached to the microscope enable visual tracking of optical axis and focal point. Combined with the new robotic capabilities of microscopes, navigation now plays an indispensable role in performing state-of-the-art surgeries.
Auto-detection of connected microscope minimizes setup effort
Seamless integration with Brainlab Cranial and Spine Navigation software
Support of all major vendors of surgical microscopes
Augmented reality overlays, visible through the microscope optical or the video screen microscope for surgery using a microscope

Augmented reality has become an essential technology in neurosurgery. Microscope Navigation visualizes the planned surgical target and surrounding structures as semi-transparent volumes mixed with the anatomy seen, providing better spatial orientation throughout the procedure. Touch-based rotation of the displayed 2D video image or Probe’s Eye reconstruction reveals underlying structures in 3D for more anatomical insight.
Immediate Maximum Intensity Projection (MIP) for more vascular detail
Virtual 360° Target view improves assessment of critical areas, e.g. aneurysm
Visualization of eloquent fiber tract information
Microscope augmented reality allows for the surgeon to detect shifts in the anatomy during brain surgery
