Paper Abstract

Computer-assisted stereotactic neurological surgery, together with laser instruments, can help neurosurgeons locate and resect deep brain tumor more accurately and more conveniently than traditional techniques. Several successful neurosurgical computer imaging systems already exist, such as Compass and the Neurosurgical Planning System (NSPS-3.0). These systems offer successful software and hardware tools for surgery planning as well as real-time laser instrument guidance.
