Abstract In its third decade of development, neuronavigation has matured from pure trajectory planning to an instrument that can provide instant anatomical orientation on basis of three-dimensional (3D) images that closely match the microsurgical field at hand. Functional tissue properties may be incorporated in these images and volumetric rendering allows for visualization of all significant anatomical landmarks in the surgical path in one single view by modulating the opacity of overlying… CONTINUE READING
