Information-guided stereotaxis, assisted by visualization of medical information, will become the next generation of neurosurgical systems. We performed 76 open MRI surgeries at Tokyo Women's Medical University between March 3, 2000 and April 12, 2001. Of them, comparisons of pre-and post-operative MR images for malignant gliomas in 21 cases revealed an average resection rate of 90.3% (the maximum 100%, the minimum 55%). In this article we describe real time updated navigation, augmented reality navigation, three-dimensional navigation, chemical navigation, information-guided navigation system (High definition visual Computer Aided Surgery System: HivisCAS), and open MRI-guided surgery that we are developing.
