Paper Abstract

The stereotactic procedures allow, with the aid of a reference frame supporting an instrument holder, us to define a trajectory to access to a target in a coordinate system recognized by the imaging systems and corresponding to the frame coordinate system. In the field of stereotactic research, a number of major problems in Medical Imaging are encountered: 3-D imaging, multimodal data fusion, 3-D segmentation, PACS, etc. These problems resolved, the design of a computerized application allowing the neurosurgical stereotactic act simulation has its own problems: development of man/computer interface, 2-D and 3-D display tools, validation, integration of computerized application into the clinical environment, etc.
