Intracranial lesions are invisible and exploration can be hazardous to the patient's postoperative quality of life. The first generation of neurosurgeons relied on their knowledge of neurology and anatomy to try to locate the patient's lesion. In general, this did not produce satisfactory results. Improvements in neuroradiology, neuroanesthesia, and neurosurgical techniques have diminished the proportion of the brain viewed as inoperable. These improvements have significantly improved patient outcomes.
