Abstract

Rules of geometry and stereomorphometry are often applied to narrow and deep neurosurgical approaches. Methods of research are based on the direct cadaver measurements, radiological analysis and intraoperative measurements. Newly developed devices allow direct morphometry to be performed in vivo, during the operation.
We describe the use of the neuronavigation system Stealth Station by Medtronic for such stereomorphometric measurements and evaluate the precision of the described method.
