The advent of image-guided surgical technology has revolutionized conventional surgical techniques by providing surgeons with an intricate view of almost all body parts that includes the lobe of a brain, the nasal cavities, and even the structure of vertebrae in the spine. Computer-assisted image-guidance technology is a development to be on the lookout that will work in concert with minimally invasive techniques and is found to be much more powerful and elegant than simple X-ray technology. This minimally invasive technique enables the surgeons to obtain three-dimensional models of a patient’s anatomy that appears on a computer screen with virtual representations of real surgical instruments. Surgeries can even be fore planned virtually on the computer before a patient is subjected to anesthesia.

This presentation intends to specifically cover the unique integration of emerging technological advances in computer-assisted image-guidance and intraoperative image-guidance systems that will bring about fewer traumas to normal tissues, push forward the healing times, minor incisions, equivalent or better relief from pain, and last of all hasten the patient’s normal recovery. Highlights of the PPT include: outline of the surgical concepts behind image-guided surgery and robotic-assisted surgery; viewpoint on surgical robots designed to address surgeon’s limitations; enabling computer-assisted technologies for minimally invasive surgery, and future trends for image-guided surgical interventions sector.
