Wearable technology interfaces with normal human movement and function, thereby enabling more efficient and adaptable use. We developed a wearable display system for use with intra-operative neuronavigation for brain tumor surgery. The Google glass headup display system was adapted to surgical loupes with a video-streaming integrated hardware and software device for display of the Stealth S7 navigation screen. Phantom trials of surface ventriculostomy were performed. The device was utilized as an alternative display screen during cranial surgery. Image-guided brain tumor resection was accomplished using Google Glass head-up display of Stealth S7 navigation images. Visual display consists of navigation video-streaming over a wireless network. The integrated system developed for video-streaming permits video data display to the operating surgeon without requiring movement of the head away from the operative field. Google Glass head-up display can be used for intra-operative neuronavigation in the setting of intracranial tumor resection.
