The use of a computer program that allows the integration of stereotactically gathered CT, MRI and digital angiographic data in the planning of a biopsy trajectory is described. This system has been used to perform 447 stereotactic biopsies in 439 patients. Intracranial hemorrhages occurred in three patients; combined morbidity and mortality was less than 1%. Incorporation of angiographic data and visualization of the surgical trajectory enhances the safety and accuracy of stereotactic biopsy of intracranial lesions.
