The role of automatic computer-aided surgical trajectory planning in improving the expected safety of stereotactic neurosurgery

Abstract Purpose Minimal invasion computer-assisted neurosurgical procedures with various tool insertions into the brain may carry hemorrhagic risks and neurological deficits. The goal of this study is to investigate the role of computer-based surgical trajectory planning tools in improving the…

Planning safe trajectories in image-guided keyhole neurosurgery

Abstract Many image-guided keyhole neurosurgery procedures require the precise targeting of tumors and anatomical structures with a surgical tool inside the brain based on pre-operative CT/MRI images. A misplacement of the surgical tool from the planned trajectory may result severe…
