Haacke et al5). The resonance of hydrogen protons placed in a magnetic field produces radio waves. The frequency of the N-shaped fiducial localization systems typically used in stereotactic frame systems are immune to image voxel dimension error and tilt angle error. The development and success of point-based and surface-based frameless IGS systems is due in large part to substantial improvement in the geometrical fidelity of images produced by current scanners. pgsI 16 2/28/02 10:42 AM Page 16 Principles and Technology radio wave signal is proportional to the strength of the local magnetic field.
However, it is important to note that, although the economic consideration may be substantial, it does not alter the highly variable ways in which diagnostic images are acquired. Typically successful and accurate image registration is best obtained using prospectively acquired images following a protocol specifically designed for IGS. Examples of important image acquisition factors are field of view, voxel dimensions (especially slice thickness), and considerations that impact geometric fidelity.
