Computer-assisted skull base surgery

Abstract

Skull base surgery, along with computerization, has changed dramatically over the past two decades. Today's medical assessment, patient care, and the surgical environment bear little resemblance to those in the past. The speed of development and the large volume of information generated requires great efforts from surgeons to familiarize themselves with new terminology, equipment, and approaches. Diagnostic radiology, hospital environments, education methodology, equipment design, navigational aids, and future application of computerization are briefly discussed. Newer terminology is italicized, and some recommended electronic reference is offered. Ability to keep pace with this developing technology will determine future participation by surgeons in an ever more competitive market.
