Abstract

A technique for scalp marking using computed tomography (CT) images is described. A reference marker is placed on the scalp and a plain lateral skull film is obtained. Using the CT scan image and the CT scout film, the target is marked on the plain skull film. The distance and angle of the target from the reference point on the plain film are measured and marked on the scalp to indicate the location of the target.
