Abstract

The diagnostic value of stereotactic biopsies of deep brain tumours depends on the accuracy of the target. It is necessary to investigate the different components of pathologic tissue in order to obtain an idea of the spatial extension of the tumour and its boundaries3. In 200 stereotactic brain tumour biopsies performed since 1978, the sampling of tissue was guided by a multimodal technique including neuroradiological and neurophysiological investigations.
