Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has presented an advanced Iranian-made surgical navigation device to his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.
During a Tuesday meeting with Putin in the Russian capital, Moscow, the Iranian chief executive presented the device as a technological gift from the Islamic Republic to Russia.
The apparatus has been designed and developed by Iranian experts, and only a limited number of developed countries, including Germany and the United States, have the device’s know-how.
The system can be applied for sophisticated brain and ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat) operations with high precision. It also provides surgeons with a detailed environment by enabling them to observe microscopic images on the screen.
Ahmadinejad was in Moscow to attend the 2nd Summit of the 13-nation Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF).
