An accurate identification of cerebral structures is necessary to perform quantification of single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). We have developed an anatomical localization system that accounts for individual brain shapes and sizes by using the Talairach proportional grid system. The locations of the commissural lines, which define the stereotactic coordinate system, are calculated from the external landmarks provided by the canthomeatal line. This is validated on MRI images… CONTINUE READING
