Why is it important?

A successful brain biopsy was performed at University Hospital Dubrava with the RONNA G3 robotic system.


After the first documented procedure with the RONNA G3 system we have further developed the RONNA system to it's fourth generation RONNA G4. We performed a prospective study on robot‐assisted brain biopsies on 32 patients using the RONNA G4 system described in detail in our new research: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/rcs.2245
