Digital and print brain atlases have been used with success to help in the planning of neurosurgical interventions. In this paper, a technique presented for the creation of a brain atlas of the basal ganglia and the thalamus derived from serial histological data. Photographs of coronal histological sections were digitized and anatomical structures were(More)
Digital brain atlases can be used in conjunction with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) for planning and guidance during neurosurgery. Digital atlases are advantageous, since they can be warped nonlinearly to fit each patient's unique anatomy. Two atlas-to-patient warping techniques are compared in this paper. The first technique(More)
Pre-operative magnetic resonance (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) image volumes are often used for planning and guidance during functional neurosurgical procedures. These operations can include the creation of lesions in the thalamus (thalamotomy) or the globus pallidus (pallidotomy), or the insertion of deep brain stimulation (DBS) electrodes in the(More)
