Computer expertise has constructed remarkably within the box of neurosurgery prior to now 10 to twenty years. nice achievements were made lately in neuroimaging strategies and machine know-how for neuronavigation, from frameless, armless structures to robot microscopes. inside the current quantity are the entire papers offered on the foreign Symposium on Computer-Assisted Neurosurgery and chosen papers provided on the sixth Annual assembly of the japanese Society of desktops in Neurosurgery, that have been held in Kobe, Japan, on January 24-26, 1997. This quantity is a accomplished description and evaluation of present technical advert­ vancements in computer-assisted neurosurgery, with a different specialize in complex intraoperative neuroimaging, numerous neuronavigation approach, robot microscopes, and techniques for preoperative and intraoperative surgical making plans utilizing high-power workstations with 3-dimensional software program. We show our because of the members for his or her participation and cooperation, and to Springer-Verlag for private and technical counsel in publishing this paintings. We basically desire that this quantity will give a contribution to enhancing neurosurgical know-how and outcomes.

Vitamin E capsules were used for MR fiducials and lead shots for CT. Operating Room Setup The positions of patient, surgeons, and monitors are outlined in Fig. 1. All patients must be placed in rigid pin fixation, which can create some problems with positioning for ventricular or cyst-to-peritoneal shunting. Most important is that the monitors be placed such that the surgeon can look directly up from the operating field to the monitors without having to turn his or her head. This is especially important for endoscopy monitor ........

While conventional stereotaxis provides for a straight approach, the MKM robotic microscope allows for complex curved approaches, allowing access to deep targets using transulcal approaches. A straight trajectory is defined by two points, an entry and a target point. A curved trajectory is defined by multiple points along the planned approach. Both straight-line and curved approaches can be defined using computer visualization and manipulation tools. Information on multiple trajectories can be stored in the computer memory.
