Ultrasound can improve neurosurgical procedures by helping you navigate and identify lesions and anatomical structures in real-time. The bk5000 provides immediate, auto-optimized images that allow you to see the information you need, faster.
Visualization and Planning
Neurosurgical intraoperative ultrasound works in real-time to help provide a complete overview of brain/lesion anatomy and lesion localization, and can assist in the identification of brain shift after pre-operative scans.
Tumor Resection: Evaluation
Neurosurgical intraoperative ultrasound helps surgeons spare eloquent areas of the brain during tumor resection surgery. Repeated ultrasound scans throughout surgery allow real-time guidance on resection extent, and brain tissue characterization can assist in the assessment of residual tumor remnants.
Neurosurgical intraoperative ultrasound helps to guide safe and quick shunt placements, with accurate detection and targeting of the ventricle in question. With our burr-hole transducer and single-use needle guides, shunt placements may be performed by one person.
EXCLUSIVE DIGITAL INTEGRATION
Brainlab Ultrasound Navigation Software provides updated and accurate images for instant navigation and enables real-time overlay of ultrasound imaging on pre-operative MRI/CT providing immediate information about brain shift.
Ultrasound Navigation Software facilitates scanning and reconstruction of 3D ultrasound data faster than intraoperative MR and CT and the digital transmission ensures no loss of ultrasound image quality.

Dr. Michael Bartoš describes how real-time ultrasound images are overlaid onto preoperative MR or CT data, helping him identify and assess brain shift, navigate on up-to-date anatomical data, and evaluate extent of tumor resection.
