Abstract: We have developed a prototype display workstation for use in stereotactic neurosurgery. Patient image data from computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and digital subtraction angiography are acquired with the stereotactic frame in place and subsequently transferred to the workstation for further processing. Target points may be identified on any image type and probe trajectories defined. Any point or line indicated on one set of images may be transferred immediately to other images, to determine, for instance, safe avascular probe paths. We present some general outlines for the use of computers for stereotactic neurosurgery and discuss the different components of the current system. Finally, we make some suggestions as to further developments.
