Multimodality image integration for stereotactic surgical planning


, : Multimodality image integration for stereotactic surgical planning. Medical Physics 18(2): 167-177

A method is presented for integrating stereotactic projection and tomographic image data to give composite 3-D images (stereo pairs) of cerebral anatomy and vasculature. The technique serves to combine complementary information from each modality and allows the imaged volume to be viewed directly. The procedure is largely automated and requires no additional apparatus or information beyond that which is ordinarily employed during stereotactic surgical planning. The two types of data are combined by superimposing the projection angiogram (DSA) onto a translucent volume rendered CT or MR image. Since the rendering algorithm employs an orthographic projection technique, the tomographic volume must first be reshaped and oriented to yield a perspective view that matches the DSA projection. During this process, the data undergo various interpolations which consequently affect the accuracy of target identification based on the resulting images. The integrity of the matching procedure was assessed using simulated data sets. Also, calculations were performed to estimate the resolution of measurements made from digitized stereoscopic images. The resulting sub-pixel accuracy of the matched images suggests that the technique has potential for stereotactic applications. Preliminary results are presented illustrating combined CT-DSA and MR-DSA data sets.
