A method for stereotactic coordinate determination by means of X-ray tomography is presented. A standard stereotactic method has been slightly modified, and the localization procedure has been adapted to CT scanning as well as conventional tomography. The technique allows rapid and accurate determination of the instrument coordinates of the target by the surgeon and may be used in conjunction with any standard CT body scanner or X-ray tomograph.
