Comments on "A New CT-Aided Stereotactic Neurosurgery Technique"


The method given for finding the position of a target in three-dimensional space from a CT image is incorrect. The solution is based on representation of the target vector as a linear combination of two coplanar nonparallel vectors. This results in a single linear equation with two unknowns. An alternative formulation is offered, solved, and the existence and uniqueness of the solution is proved.
