  • INTRODUCTION
    1. COURSE OBJECTIVES
    2. The aim of this course is to provide a global view of the ultrasonic-guided neuronavigation in brain surgery . Real-time accessing technique brings valuable informations to neurosurgeons in managing brain lesions. This ultrasonic-based technique requires knowledges of basic ultrasounic imaging, basic principles of neuronavigation and ultrasounic interpretation with clinical practice.

      We will bring together a unique panel of experts. Our faculties will present the anatomical and technical aspects by
      emphasizing the indications, advantages and limitations of this technique from CNS to PNS.
