Abstract

Stereotactic examinations with CT scan have previously demonstrated their performances but the specific interest of MRI in the neurooncology field requires the transposition of a well established CT scan method into NMR technology (2,3,6). Main problems concern the material included in the stereotactic frame (without any ferromagnetic substances), the position of the patient in the imaging system and the visibility of constrast substances in MRI. Regarding these three demands, we have developed a convenient stereotactic frame for both MRI and CT scans. This frame is of very simple use according to the atraumatic fixation on the patient head and allows short time examination compatible with routine use of imaging.
