    Stereotactic volumetric resection of deep-seated intracerebral lesions is generally believed to require expensive and complex facilities. The authors report a simple system for stereotactic craniotomy, in which the software in the computed tomographic scanner and a personal computer are used for preoperative planning and intraoperative orientation.
