CT intracranial localization with a new marker system


Application of a new CT localization system for intracranial lesions in pre- and intraoperative guidance is described. This system consists of air grooves within an acrylic plate for CT examinations and a duplicate plate with wires in place of air grooves for scout radiography. This new device can also be applied in stereotaxic surgery or in radiotherapy planning.
