Cerebral angiography under stereotactic conditions
- 26 Downloads
A simple system for cerebral angiography under stereotactic conditions using standard components is described. X-ray tubes and power generator belong to the usual equipment of the stereotact operating room. A film changer and an injection pump were integrated into the stereotactic arrangement. Angiographic documents with reduced X-ray magnification were obtained. For topographical orientation 5 films per seriogram were sufficient. The system also allows stereoscopic viewing by performing an additional oblique sequence after the head ring is rotated exactly 6 degrees. The combination of the necessary diagnostic procedures, as CT scan, angiography, ventriculography, serial biopsy within a single three coordinate reference system offers considerable advantages for brain tumour patients.
