Paper Abstract

We present a useful clinical method for relating plane X-ray film coordinates to a head-fixed reference system. It is commercialized as an add-on to one of the most widespread systems for stereotactic neurosurgery. It can be used for stereotactic irradiation of cerebral blood vessel malformations, as well as for planning avascular electrode paths in stereotactic biopsies or conventional neurosurgery. There are no constraints on the relative position of the X-ray tube, patient and film holder. Extensive simulation tests demonstrate the reliability and accuracy for clinical practice.
