On display, some of the hottest new trends in medical technology.

It's a sight you don't see every day: a ninety-foot-tall, 17-hundred pound anatomically correct human brain balloon.

The colorful vessel launched this year's Congress of Neurological Surgeons meeting in California.

CNS director Dr. Issam Awad says, "This meeting brings together surgeons from around the world to examine new advances in our discipline."

Over 175 companies worldwide are participating in the event, displaying hundreds of state of the art procedures and services.

One of the hottest trends is developing software for neurosurgeons.

One company called "Brain Lab" showed off its new technology. It allows surgeons to navigate through complex surgical procedures.

The software enables them to clearly identify sensitive structures such as tumors, blood vessels or nerves that may otherwise be difficult to see.

Stefan Vilsmeier, Brain Lab spokesperson says, "Through software, surgical procedures will be carried out less invasively, less expensively. In neurosurgery, software will be the most important driving factor in advancing surgical techniques."

Surgical techniques that continue to amaze the brain.
