[Sulcal identification and neuronavigation in supratentorial cavernoma surgery]

Abstract : We present the use of cortical sulci, segmented from magnetic resonance imaging, in image guided neurosurgery. Sulcal information was transferred to a surgical microscope with enhanced reality features. This assistance was used for the resection of supratentorial cavernomas (7 patients). Sulci were semi-automatically segmented from 3D MRI data sets. Sulci close to the cavernoma were selected and transferred to the neuronavigation system which allows the superimposition of graphics into the right ocular of the microscope. Selected sulci were displayed on the workstation and superimposed into the ocular of the microscope. Cortical sulci proved to be useful for the recognition of the anatomical environment. The superimposed sulci helped to optimize location and size of the skin incision as well as to guide the access to the cavernoma by using the course of a sulcus as indirect trajectory.
