Functional Planning, an optional software module for use with Leksell SurgiPlan, facilitates target localization.
The AC-PC line can easily be defined in 3D space regardless of the imaging plane(s) in which it is located. The patient’s images can then be realigned with the AC-PC line so they are truly axial, coronal and sagittal, making them easier to reference with different brain atlases.
Frame attachment is also facilitated since perfect frame alignment with the AC-PC line is no longer necessary.
Targets can be localized by using formulas based on distances from the AC-PC line. The corresponding stereotactic coordinates are automatically calculated.
Leksell SurgiPlan is an advanced image-based neurosurgical planning software, designed for use with Leksell Stereotactic System®.
