With the use of computer-based intraoperative navigation, advantageous results for the patient and the surgeon have been obtained, and include greater accuracy in instrument operations, a better understanding of complex spinal anatomy during surgery, lower radiation exposure, shorter surgical time, and lower complication rates. These systems allow three-dimensional imaging simultaneously with the operation and without changing the patient"s position in the operating room. These new imaging techniques provide information about the patient"s current position and position-related anatomy with three-dimensional images in the operating room and provide navigation support based on snapshot data. It is possible to apply this technology in all cervical region operations, from the craniocervical junction to the cervicothoracic junction. Navigation-guided surgical procedures have the potential to reduce the risk of screw malposition and improve operative time, mean blood loss, radiation exposure time, and complication rates compared to standard fluoroscopy use.
