CAScination Cases - Blog

The CAScination Clinical Case Blog - Independent User Experiences of CAScination's Stereotactic Navigation System

Every month the CAScination Clinical Case Blog publishes independent reports of interventional procedures carried out with CAScination’s stereotactic navigation systems. Reports are published in English and German and submitted by the clinical teams directly as blog posts.

Cases are summarised as brief notes with highlights of the initial condition and treatment to date, followed by the intervention. Each stage of the intervention is documented with annotated scans and comments. Treatment outcomes and follow up details conclude the post.

Optimised for mobile viewing the cases are a quick and convenient and way to stay informed on new applications and hear from colleagues and their use of the stereotactic navigation systems. The blog format encourages comments, discussions and exchanges of experiences. The cases will be posted on all CAScination social medial platforms including Twitter and LinkedIn to facilitate sharing.
