myAO Clinical Roundup on Computer-Assisted and Image-Guided Spine Surgery 
Dear colleague,
Navigation technology is a widely available tool in spine surgery, and Computer-assisted Surgery (CAS) and Image-guided Surgery (IGS) have become a part of clinical routine in many centers. It is the aim of this roundup to give an overview on the current knowledge shared on myAO concerning the capabilities of computer-assisted and image-guided approaches.
