Because of the limited application of frame-based stereotaxy to general neurosurgical procedures, we have carried out a preliminary evaluation of the ISG Viewing Wand, a frameless image-directed surgical system that is based on the rapid reformat and accurate three-dimensional reconstruction capability of parallel processor-based computer technology. We have compared the first 36 cases carried out with the system in the Frenchay Neurosurgery Department with a retrospective analysis of the… CONTINUE READING
