Vesalius – Virtual Proteins

Starting from CT or MRI images Virtual proteins is a system that is able to fully reconstruct in 3D a patient’s case and it used to visualise the anatomy of the patient. In the neurosurgical field in particular, it is used for the treatment of vascular malformations as it reconstructs the “blood vessel trees” in a very precise manner. This reconstruction allows the surgeon to accurately analyze the characteristics of a disease, establish what is the most effective therapy, and in the case of surgical intervention, choose the best way to reach the diseased vessel, managing to define in advance if there are important brain structures to cross that may be damaged.
