Stereotactic Systems, Image-Guided, Biopsy

Definition : Image-guided computer-aided stereotactic surgical systems designed to aid in the performance of minimally invasive biopsy procedures by combining medical imaging, dedicated computer software, and surgical instrument tracking systems for guidance. The systems provide surgeons with real-time, three-dimensional (3-D) positioning and orientation of surgical instruments relative to the patient's anatomy on a video display during the biopsy without the use of an endoscope. Biopsy image-guided stereotactic systems provide medical images that show the location of the instruments in real time during the biopsy. One or more imaging modalities, such as computed tomography (CT) and/or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), may be used in the procedure. Dedicated image-guided stereotactic systems intended for particular procedures such as breast, bronchi, and prostate biopsies are available.
