Of the existing atlases of the brain anatomy and cerebrovasculature, none integrates the anatomy and vasculature by providing for direct manipulation of three-dimensional (3D) cerebral models. An atlasbased application was developed in four steps: (a) construction of 3D anatomic models, (b) construction of 3D vascular models, (c) interactive spatial coregistration of the anatomic and vascular models, and (d) development of functionality and a user interface for the application. Three…

Computer-aided stereotactic functional neurosurgery enhanced by the use of the multiple brain atlas database
Neurosurgical planning with mutually preregistered multiple brain atlases in all three orthogonal orientations is novel and its potential benefits include increased accuracy of target definition, reduced time of the surgical procedure by decreasing the number of tracts, facilitated planning of more sophisticated trajectories, and the extra degree of confidence given to the neurosurgeon.

The multiple brain atlas database and atlas-based neuroimaging system have substantial potential impact in stereotactic neurosurgery and radiotherapy by assisting in visualization and real-time manipulation in three dimensions of anatomical structures, in quantitative neuroradiology by allowing interactive analysis of clinical data, in three-dimensional neuroeducation, and in brain function studies.

A novel approach for the use of the Atlas for Stereotaxy of the Human Brain by Schaltenbrand and Wahren for anatomical targeting in functional neurosurgery by using simultaneously all three electronic axial, coronal and sagittal mutually coregistered brain atlas microseries.
A locus-driven mechanism for rapid and automated atlas-assisted analysis of functional images by using the Brain Atlas for Functional Imaging.
The electronic brain atlas with locus-driven mechanism is a useful tool for localization analysis of functional images and enables the analysis to be performed in an automated, rapid, explicit, three-dimensionally consistent, and user-friendly way.
A Community-Centric Internet Portal for Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery with a Probabilistic Functional Atlas
An Internet portal for stereotactic and functional neurosurgery with a probabilistic functional atlas calculated from electrophysiological and neuroimaging data potentially increases both the accuracy of targeting and the neurosurgeon’s confidence.
Model-enhanced neuroimaging: clinical, research, and educational applications.
Four groups of model-enhanced applications for education, medical research, diagnosis, and treatment are focused on, and they are illustrated by the systems and technologies developed in the lab.
