Guiding Tumor Resections in Neurosurgery with Intraoperative Ultrasound: Prof. Geirmund Unsgård

Posted by BK Medical on Feb 5, 2020 2:18:19 PM

"Ultrasound is very important for tumor resection because of brain shift and the need to see residual tumor and the tumor border."

Recently, we introduced you to Prof. Geirmund Unsgård, Professor Emeritus of Neurosurgery at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). We have talked with Prof. Unsgård about using intraoperative ultrasound in neurosurgery and how the use of intraoperative ultrasound can help account for brain shift during neurosurgery. Today, we are talking with Professor Unsgård about the visualization and planning of tumor resection surgeries.
