Stereotactic Devices Market Analysis | Europe | 2017-2023 | MedCore
Stereotaxy allows neurosurgeons to localize targets within patients brains using methodology that incorporates coordinate systems with diagnostic image information. It was first conducted in 1908 by two British scientists, Sir Victor Horsley and Robert H. Clarke who placed frames on small animals based on external anatomical landmarks to navigate to specific points in their brains. This technology was not yet precise enough to be used in human subjects.

Frame-based systems remain the golden standard in terms of accuracy and are more commonly used for small targets and procedures like the implantation of deep brain stimulators. This benefit will allow them to maintain their share of the market until frameless technology reaches the same level of accuracy. Over the forecast period, the total European stereotactic market will increase.
This technology allows for tumor boundary recognition to be enhanced, for the determination of the optimal placement and size of craniotomies, and for planning the least invasive surgical path. A process of continuous development has expanded the use of stereotactic instruments from basic diagnostic procedures into more advanced therapeutic applications.
