A procedure to remove a sample of abnormal tissue is called a brain biopsy and allows a neurosurgeon the diagnosis of a brain lesion. After the decision for this procedure, the BiopsyPointer is guided by the CUBE4D in the preoperative CT or MRI scan and enables a direct and constant guidance for the surgeon. Different biopsy needles are compatible with the BiopsyPointer and are easily calibrated with the MultiPad.
The reduction and resorption of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is normally balanced. A disturbance of this balance where the volume of CSF increases is called Hydrocephalus. By now the implantation of a drainage system, which is called shunt system, is a treatment solution. With Fiagon’s ShuntPointer the placement of the ventricular catheter inside one of the lateral ventricles can be done under continuous guidance. The ShuntPointer are pre-calibrated and to be as plug and play instrument.
