MRI Stereotaxy for Intracerebral Lesions
Some intracerebral lesions, for example low-grade gliomas, particularly those located infratentorially and near the base, are more clearly depicted in MRI examinations than in CT; this has made it necessary for us to integrate this method of examination into our stereotactic procedure (1, 2). The method of MRI stereotaxy for the stereotactic device of RIECHERT and MUNDINGER in the computer-compatible form of MUNDINGER and BIRG was developed by us in order to combine both techniques (2, 3).
