The Patil System

  • Arun-Angelo Patil
Part of the Topics in neurological surgery book series (TINS, volume 1)


The ability to visualize intracranial structures using computed tomography (CT) has led to the increased popularity of stereotactic procedures among neurosurgeons. Both the adaptation of existing stereotactic systems to the CT scanner and the introduction of entirely new systems have been reported in the literature [1–16]. To make them CT-compatible, most systems have utilized special computer programming.
