Paper Abstract

We have combined the use of 3D computer-reconstructed images with a video patient-registration technique to facilitate the guidance of neurosurgery. In addition we have devised an automated image registration process utilizing laser scanning to create a surface model of the patient that can be matched to the 3D computer model.
