Neuronavigation-guided open biopsy

General

The neuronavigation-guided biopsy is performed for symptom producing lesions in the brain parenchyma where diagnostic clarification is important. This applies especially for lesions that are not accessible for resection or where there is a suspicion of a tumor type that should receive a different treatment than surgical resection.

This kind of biopsy is only chosen when endoscopic or stereotactic biopsy are not applicable.

Indication

  • Brain tumor

Goal

  • Determine the diagnosis in order to evaluate further treatment
