Den neurologischen Blick schärfen – mit dem Klassiker Vielfältige und präzise diagnostische Hilfsmittel stehen in der Neurologie heute zur Verfügung. Doch am Beginn der Untersuchung ist der differenzialdiagnostische Blick neben einer sorgfältigen Anamnese elementar, um das challenge des Patienten einzuordnen und die weitere Diagnostik und Behandlung in die richtige Richtung zu führen.

Together, target and entry points define a linear surgical trajectory. In theory, nonlinear trajectories could be approximated by a series of linear surgical trajectories. The target is once again represented by a small sphere, and the intersection of the target sphere with the target-push plane generates a small circle. Although the previous paradigm for generating the AWT circle remains valid, an alternative mechanism is to create a virtual sphere at the tip of the wand. Its projection 42 & PART I: BASIC PRINCIPLES Figure 4 Surgeon’s view oblique image perpendicular to the viewing axis containing the predefined target and probe position as two open circles.

One approach has the ability to quickly and automatically register the patient without the need for a CT scan. Combining intraoperative C-arm fluoroscopy with free-hand surgical navigation techniques, modules were developed to automate digital X-ray image registration. Following attachment of a noninvasive localizer CHAPTER 2: SURGICAL NAVIGATION SYSTEM TECHNOLOGIES & 33 to the image intensifier, the first X-ray image is acquired. Those are automatically detected and this information is used to correct for deformation.
