In case of tumors and strokes, latest medical imaging techniques have improved on both diagnosis and intervention. Tumors and strokes are treated with surgery, mainly Minimal Invasive Neurosurgery with state-of-art imaging technologies offering highly personalized and direct means of cutting out brain tumors and strokes while leaving healthy tissues of the brain untouched. In near future, Image Guided -Minimal Invasive Neurosurgery would allow for little cerebrospinal fluid loss, no brain retraction, less blood loss and reduction in seizures. The upcoming generation of Minimal Invasive Surgery will increase the survival rate of patients and protect patients from the trauma during neurosurgeries.
