Neurosurgical emergencies, Volume 1

Front Cover
American Association of Neurological Surgeons, 1994 - Medical - 411 pages
Successful neurosurgery and accurate localization of the intracranial pathology are inextricably entwined. The emergence and development of computerised image processing and three dimensional spatial localizers have radically improved accuracy of detection of the disease site - this text offers the first comprehensive appraisal of the entire range of surgical guidance systems currently available to the neurosurgeon. Twenty self-contained sections, written by experts at the forefront of research and development, explore modern image-guided surgery systems - covering their operation, appropriate application and effectiveness. The very latest technology is examined here including neuro-imaging fundamentals, registration techniques, intraoperative feedback opportunities."
