Value of Intra-operative CT and Navigation Systems

At the recent Combined Spine Conference in Lake Louise, we invited all staff surgeons and surgical trainees (fellows) attending to participate in a survey called:

A Qualitative Web Based Expert Opinion Analysis on the Adoption of Intra-Operative CT and Navigation Systems

We would like to extend this invitation to all Spine Society of Australia members.   

Surgeons are eligible to participate regardless of whether or not they presently use an intra-operative CT and navigation system. This study is being led by Canadian Spine Society members Dr. Melissa Nadeau (fellow), and Dr. John Street, from the Combined Neurosurgical and Orthopaedic Spine Program at Vancouver General Hospital / University of British Columbia.

The survey includes general demographics and surgical practice questions, as well as several questions about perception of the use of intra-operative CT and navigation systems.  The types of questions vary from multiple choice, short free text, and rating scale questions.  The time estimated to complete this survey is 20 minutes.

All respondents will be entered into a draw for a $250 gift card to an online store of the winners choosing.

Please email the Study Coordinator, Juliet Batke (juliet.batke@vch.ca) to receive a link to the survey. 

Thank you for your time and participation,

Drs. Melissa Nadeau and John Street
