In order to utilize computed tomography (CT) for functional neurosurgical procedures, a number of problems must be resolved. One such problem is the development of an appropriate technique for digital processing of neuroanatomical images. Our previous work concerned a numerical reproduction of a well-known stereotactic atlas and its three-dimensional manipulation. In order to efficiently utilize this information with CT images we propose a technique for data reduction that allows the reconstruction of anatomical structures from the atlas. The logic of implementing these data in CT-assisted stereotactic surgery is described.
