About Sinus Image-Guided Surgery
Due to the limited visibility and cramped space of the sinus cavity, sinus surgery can pose quite a challenge to even the most skilled surgeon. Thanks to frontrunners like those at miVIP Surgery Centers, an improved method of sinus surgery is now becoming increasingly popular.
With sinus-image-guided-surgery, the unique challenges of sinus surgery have become far simpler to manage. By making a 3D model of the sinus area via a computerized image, surgeons can get a definitive view of the area as they work. This greatly reduces the difficulty involved in navigating the nasal cavity blindly, and cuts back on possible damage to healthy tissue surrounding the affected areas.
How the Surgery is Performed
Using a CT scan to map out the nasal cavity, an image of the surgical area is streamed to a monitor. As the image is transferred from scan to monitor it is rendered 3D and magnified, allowing the surgeon greater visibility while performing the procedure. The surgeon’s tools are identified within the image, as a means to locate them at each step of the way.
This 3D image allows the surgeon to wield his or her tools with greater precision while performing the surgery. It also allows surgeons to better differentiate between diseased and healthy tissues, thus cutting back unnecessary injury to the area surrounding where the surgeon is working.
