AOSpine Live Webcast—Intraoperative 3-D Imaging and Computer Guidance in Cervical Spinal Trauma

This webcast is a live demonstration by Markus Schultheiss and Thomas Blattert of the application of the latest intraoperative 3-D imaging in combination with CAS guidance for minimally invasive surgery in the cervical spine. It is for orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, and experienced residents who manage spinal trauma, as well as those who have a special interest in new technologies in intraoperative imaging.
