MR image guided trans-endoscopic surgical System

Shigeyuki Naka, Shiga University of Medical Science

MRI (Magnetic Resonance Image) has been recognized as an established image guidance tool for a minimally invasive therapy in recent years. We have developed a novel MR -image guided surgical system for endoscopic surgery in the closed bore MRI. Using a new real-time MR image guided surgical system, endoscopic surgical procedures can be performed with endoscopic images and real-time MR image combination. In this talk, I would like to present our new surgical system of MR image-guidance and a concept of clinical applications.
