Paper Abstract

In the 1960s stereotactic surgery was done merely by taking two projective images, using hand calculations to determine the numerical values, and deriving a set of specific measurements that guided a needle through an eloquent part of the brain. This type of surgery developed through the years, taking advantage of the new technologies in imaging modalities, networking, advanced video systems, high speed computer workstations, to the most sophisticated technology currently available, digitizing systems using infrared sensing technology.
