Software, Stereotactic System, Image-Guided Surgery
Definition : Image-guided surgery stereotactic system software designed to operate computer-aided surgical systems and control/monitor their functions. This software is usually intended to work only with one or a few models of surgical systems, usually supplied by the same manufacturer. The software performs a variety of algorithms to make possible the appropriate performance of the system during the surgical procedure and to facilitate the sending/receiving of patient data from and to a workstation and/or imaging and information systems. Image-guided surgical stereotactic system software is frequently available separate from the surgical system and may be also updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the surgical system. Dedicated image-guided surgical system software is available for a variety of different applications, including intracranial, spinal, orthopedic, otolaryngology, and trauma procedures or combinations of them.
