Surgical navigation is key in ensuring accurate screw placement, which leads to reduced complications and increased surgical efficacy. In a study comparing the difference in accuracy of thoracic pedicle placement when using fluoroscopy vs CT-navigation, 21% of screws placed with fluoroscopy were malpositioned, compared to only 5% with the CT-navigation group.
In a systematic review, image guided navigation demonstrated the most consistently accurate placement rates.2
