Image-guided neuosurgery is a significant advancement in neurological surgery during this decade. Using digitizers, computers and video, the neurosugeon is able to exactly locate an area for incision, biopsy or surgery. In addition intraoperatively, the surgeon is able to visualize (on a video monitor) a 2D or 3D image of a specific lesion. This volume provides the neurosurgeon with practical details about how to use this fast-advancing technology. It covers the basic theory of the technology, and reviews generic technologies available, as well as the clinical application of image-guided surgery. Each chapter provides practical information on disease-specific applications, including outcomes and economics. Specific adaptations of image-guided surgery include ultrasonography, endoscopy, radiosurgery and brain biopsy.
