Abstract

Using multiplanar reconstruction (MPR) CT imaging method, virtual views of various surgical approaches were compared preoperatively. With this technique, not only virtual surgical views of aneurysms and related vasculature, but also surgical views after virtual resection of skull base bone to a desirable extent are freely available. We operated four aneurysm cases after comparing various surgical approaches by this imaging method. It was found that these preoperative simulated images were very useful at surgery of complicated aneurysm cases.
