The spine live on the screen

Dear Sir or Madam,

Spine surgery is complex, especially if the surgeon doesn't have high-resolution images. This can change now: In Münster, Germany, a technology is used which compares real-time images to previously taken CT images and superimposes them directly at the operating table . Apart from more safety for the patient, this also has many advantages for the surgeon. Learn more about the technology in the video.

Enjoy watching!
