New Brain Biopsy Technologies Could Improve Accuracy and Efficiency


Future advances in augmented reality and artificial intelligence could enhance both preoperative planning of the biopsy trajectory and its intraoperative real-time viewing. This could lead to more precise and accurate brain biopsies, with fewer complications. Technologies like 5-ALA for better diagnosis, ICG fluorescence to avoid hurting blood vessels, and robotic systems are already used in other brain surgeries and can also be used in brain biopsies.
