Ferrández-Sempere D, Eiras-Ajuria J. How to create vectorial templates for stereotactic functional surgery with Microsoft PowerPoint. Neurosurg Focus. 2002;13(4):e3.
The use of scalable templates representing the basal ganglia, as an aid in electrophysiological mapping, is a common practice among stereotactic functional neurosurgeons. The authors describe the procedure to create vectorial templates, based on the Atlas For Stereotaxy of the Human Brain by Schaltenbrand and Wahren, using inexpensive commercially available vectorial software.
