A Versatile Stereotaxic System Based on Cylindrical Co-Ordinates and Using Absolute Measurements
Stereotaxic instrumentation based on the rectangular co-ordinate system has been very fully developed, but the possible advantages of the cylindrical co-ordinate system (Turner 1972) appear to have been largely overlooked. We have developed such a system, which involves only modest modifications to the established instruments originally devised by Guiot (1958) and Gillingham (1960).
