Paper Abstract

The implementation and use of a computerized whole-brain mapping system which can be used in conjunction with the major imaging modalities (MR, CT, angiography, PET, SPECT) is described. Three mapping systems (brainstem anatomical, electrophysiological, and proportional whole-brain) based upon common reference structures about the third and fourth ventricular core of the brain are used in conjunction with internationally recognized nomenclature to create a comprehensive normalized whole-brain mapping system. This mapping technique can be universally applied to aid in discerning the surgical and anatomico-physiological topography of the brain for medical imaging.
