Theme: Navi for the intervertebral disc

The term navigation is generally associated with systems that enable orientation on earth. In recent years, however, more and more technology has become established, which is described as clinical navigation.

Starting with stereotactic frames, stereo-optical measuring systems and finally electromagnetic systems, the application of metrology is becoming established in more and more surgical procedures.

The lecture deals with the history of clinical navigation, highlights the technologies used and finally focuses on an electromagnetic navigation system for back treatments.
