Stereotactic Brain Biopsy is a diagnostic procedure to obtain tissue
samples of the areas within the brain that are suspicious for tumors.
It involves mapping the brain in a three dimensional coordinate system
with the help of 3D computer workstations. The neurosurgeons will hence
be able to accurately target any area of the brain in stereotactic space
(3D coordinate system). The Neurosurgery division has extensive experience
in mapping deep seated brain tumors using stereotaxy, and obtaining a
biopsy from it, thus avoiding big cuts and shortening hospital stay and cost.
