Paper Abstract

Stereotactic methodology is employed in a narrow range of neurosurgical procedures due to the difficulty encountered in using mechanical 3D digitizers. To extend the use of stereotaxy to all intracranial surgery, a system employing an infrared optical digitizer to track neurosurgical instruments during intracranial surgery has been developed.
