Developments in Spine Surgery: Spinal Navigation Technology


The future of spinal navigation is very exciting. Rather than sending a patient for an MRI scan or preoperative CT, in the future orthopedic surgeons will be able to get images in the operation room that can immediately create computer models of the spine of the patient. These computer models can be utilized to help navigate the spine at the time of surgery. MRI, intraoperative CT, and fluoroscopy-based CT offer high potential. The final result is allowing the surgeon to visually “travel” in and out of a spine of the patient on a computer, thereby enabling them to see things that the human eye can’t during a typical surgery. As the technology of spinal navigation proceeds, newer minimally invasive methods will become accessible.
