• A new method for displaying computerized tomographic cross sections of brain in the coronal and sagittal planes is described. These images are reconstructed from the original horizontal 3-mm thin slices. This method uses an Artronix scanner and has the advantage of completely eliminating the need to rescan the patient. These pictures are of excellent quality and have proved to be of significant value in demonstrating the special relationships between lesions and anatomical landmarks. This has proved to be of particular importance in the localization of surgical lesions preoperatively.
