Medtronic partners with Surgical Theater to provide the first augmented reality platform for use in real-rime during complex cranial procedures.
VR brings medical images to life on screen, showing interventional radiologists a patient’s unique internal anatomy to help physicians effectively prepare and tailor their approach to complex treatments.
Scientists have paired 3D-printed, living human brain vasculature with advanced computational flow simulations to better understand tumor cell attachment to blood vessels.
Engineers are developing a massive fluid dynamics simulator that can model blood flow through the full human arterial system at subcellular resolution.
Using a robot to treat brain aneurysms is feasible and could allow for improved precision when placing stents, coils and other devices.
Researchers have developed a new method to guide endovascular instruments into complex vascular structures that were inaccessible to endovascular surgeons until now.
An algorithm did better than experts radiologists at finding tiny brain hemorrhages in head scans — an advance that one day may help doctors treat patients with strokes.
A wireless sensor small enough to be implanted in the blood vessels of the human brain could help clinicians evaluate the healing of aneurysms.
Engineers have developed a highly flexible and stretchable sensor that can be integrated with the flow diverter in order to monitor hemodynamics in a blood vessel without costly diagnostic procedures.
