Paper Abstract

Multidimensional tomographic image processing can be used to provide the surgeon useful information on volume, size, shape, location and anatomical relationships of intracranial lesions. Using a reference system this information can be used to "simulate" and interactively optimize surgical treatment. Finally, this computer generated data can be transposed accurately on the "real" physical world or can be used to drive instruments such as microscopes, lasers, etc., leading to automation of neurosurgical procedures. The final goal is the optimization of surgical resection of intracranial lesions.
