  • The N-localizer, which facilitates computed tomography–guided stereotactic surgery, was invented in the late 1970s by a medical student who built a prototype stereotactic frame to test the concept. Initial experiments using the prototype frame were soon followed by surgery in humans using the Brown-Roberts-Wells stereotactic frame. ABBREVIATION: BRW, Brown-Roberts-Wells
