Brain surgery. Neurosurgeon (seated) performs microsurgery on the brain of a patient. He is using a video light microscope to magnify the operating area. The view is displayed on the monitor at upper left. The skull and membranes covering the brain have been pulled away, leaving the brain and its blood vessels exposed. Brain microsurgery is performed for delicate operations including removal of tumours, repairing damage caused by a stroke and also for taking biopsy samples. The microscope allows a greater degree of accuracy in what is always a risky operation.
