Leading companies marketing navigation systems with neurosurgical applications are continuously developing brand new systems to try and entice facilities to replace their older systems. More facilities may opt to purchase on a one year lease or enter a fee per-use agreement. Future growth will depend on companies providing increasing versatility in terms of procedural applications for systems. The current form of neuronavigation was established in the 1990’s but has significantly improved due to the implementation of new neuro-imaging technologies, real-time imaging capabilities, advancements in 3D localization and visualization, intraoperative capabilities, robotics and dramatic improvements in software. Neuronavigation has been at the forefront of image guided surgery (IGS) and computer assisted surgery (CAS) due to the level of sophistication associated with the procedures. It is continually evolving with the introduction of new technologies as well as the increased number of procedures for which it can be used. An example of a new technology emerging in this field is surgical virtualization. Neurosurgeons can essentially perform a trial virtual surgery using software which creates a 3D model of the surgical area, allowing them to assess the possible complications that may arise during the surgery and try alternative approaches to determine which will result in the most accurate results.

Abstract
Neurosurgery navigation, or neuronavigation, requires the use of computer-assisted technologies to guide neurosurgeons during cranial procedures. This type of surgery evolved from stereotactic surgery, which gained popularity during the 1940s. Stereotaxy was developed to better locate specific small targets within the patient using a three-dimensional coordinate system.
