How a nerve was saved with VSI Holomedicine

Case description:

Here is a case of a lady with a malignant tumour that was clinically very challenging and we were considering sacrificing the facial nerve. But using the imaging that has been made possible through two innovative technologies we were able change the procedure: First the ability to trace a tiny facial nerve through the parotid gland by Dr Morley at UCL, which in the second step we combined with the apoQlar technology VSI Holomedicine to get these wonderful images (watch video) that are so easy to see and understand. This led us to replan the surgery and save the lady’s facial nerve.
