Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is currently the optimal neuroradiologic technique for visualizing the anterior and posterior commissure for defining the AC-PC line. CT is the optimal technique for electrode and probe guidance during stereotactic thalamotomy. Various possibilities of transferring or overlying MRI and CT are outlined which in some future might result in more refined methods of CT-MRI guidance for stereotactic surgery.
