About the Event

As Intra-operative ultrasonography technology has advanced rapidly over the last 2 decades, there has been a tremendous increase of awareness and adoption of it into routine neurosurgical practice, especially in brain and spine tumor surgery. Intraoperative ultrasound (IoUS) in neurosurgery provides more than real-time 2-D and 3-D images today. On offer are also fusion navigation, contrast-enhanced US (CEUS) and US-elastography. These advances have empowered neurosurgeons to enhance safety and obtain insights as they begin to understand the mechanisms and applications of the technology. IoUS will continue to be the best intra-operative imaging companion to neurosurgeons for its properties of providing real-time updates and versatility.

To be able to fully take advantage of the IoUS technology, na international faculty of distinguished neurosurgeons together with Hospital das Clínicas, School of Medicine of Ribeirao Preto and University of Sao Paulo offers fellow neurosurgeons their insight and expertise in the use of IoUS in their daily practice through a practical oriented webinar.
