The past two decades have seen remarkable developments in the field of neurosurgery. Important advances have been achieved in neuroimaging techniques and computer technology for neuronavigation, from frameless, armless systems to robot microscopes. This volume is a collection of papers presented at the International Symposium on Computer-Assisted Neurosurgery held in Kobe, Japan, in January 1997. Bringing together the work of leaders in the field, the book provides a comprehensive description of the latest developments in computer-assisted neurosurgery. The focus is on advanced intraoperative neuroimaging, neuronavigation systems, and robot microscopes. Attention is also given to strategies for preoperative and intraoperative surgical planning through the use of high-power workstations with three-dimensional software. Computer-Assisted Neurosurgery provides a valuable resource in the fields of neurosurgery, medical engineering, and computer science.
