Use of Marker Computed Tomography as a Navigational Tool for Performing MinicraniotomiesFunding None.
We want to highlight a simple technique for performing smaller craniotomies, using a marker computed tomography scan, which does not require any special equipment, training or cost and is not time-consuming. Pictorial description of two such cases have been provided.
The work pertaining to this study was performed at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Rishikesh, India.
