About Atlas Meditech

The Atlas Platform is the most indispensable tool for neurosurgical planning and intelligence before an operation.

Along with its nonprofit flagship partner, the Neurosurgical Atlas, the Atlas platform is the only software of its kind ever developed to reliably advise the surgeon about optimal and safest surgical approaches, and dissection routes in 3D to every location in the brain using the most advanced algorithms beyond the capabilities of master surgeons. This platform also provides the surgeon with optimal operating room setup and environment for best outcomes. The high level of interactivity prepares the surgeon with the highest level of intelligence and confidence the night before their operations.
