Verification of the Schaltenbrand and Wahren stereotactic atlas.


:The Schaltenbrand and Wahren stereotactic atlas was critically re-examined focusing on the technical quality and the consistency of the horizontal, sagittal and frontal microscopic cut series. From each series, both an isotropic contour and a solid volume model represented by a 256 matrix with an edge length of 6.4 cm were created using 3D-interpolation. Reslicing of the solid volumes in corresponding orthogonal planes enabled thorough direct comparison of the three series. In a 3D-navigation system prototype, the contour models can be matched to MRI and CT series. Different procedures for rigid matching including landmark matching were implemented. As regards the verification criteria, the frontal Schaltenbrand and Wahren series yielded the most comprehensible results whereas in the horizontal and sagittal series artifacts appear more pronounced.
