Throughout its history, the field of neurosurgery has been revolutionized by improvements in imaging and visualization. From the development of the pneumoencephalogram, to the operating microscope, to cross sectional imaging with CT and later MRI, to stereotaxy and neuronavigation, the ability to visualize the pathology and surrounding neural structures has been the driving factor leading surgical innovation and improved outcomes. The last decade has seen perhaps the greatest impact of imaging in neurosurgery. Several examples include the ubiquitous use of neuronavigation in cranial surgery, the increasing adoption of intra-operative MRI, and the development of numerous devices designed to harness these advances for better patient care. Image-Guided Neurosurgery is a comprehensive reference on the application of contemporary imaging technologies used in neurosurgery. Specific techniques will be discussed for brain biopsies, brain tumor resection, deep brain stimulation, and more. Image-Guided Neurosurgery is written for neurosurgeons, interventional radiologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, and radiologists, as well as technical experts in imaging, image analysis, computer science, and biomedical engineering.
