Image guided surgery is defined as invasive therapy which is partially or wholly guided by images of the part of the body undergoing treatment produced by mechanical or electronic means. Since modern diagnostic scanners extensively use computers to produce images, surgery based on these images requires the use of cathode ray tube (CRT) monitors to display the images. Such monitors are not well suited for surgery. We describe the integration of a head mounted display (HMD) into a surgical localization system and our experience with use of the device in 8 patients undergoing intracranial procedures. Use of the HMD facilitates use of the localization system, to delineate tumor tissue from surrounding normal brain.
