Abstract

In order to target arteriovenous malformations (AVM) in a frameless approach, registration of two-dimensional (2D) digital-subtracted-angiographs (DSA) with three-dimensional (3D) computed tomography (CT) is required. Targeting accuracy and delineation of a frameless 2D-DSA and 3D-CT image registration tool based on bony anatomy of the skull was evaluated. This frameless approach assures accurate target localization and can be used in a clinical setting.
