We present a new preoperative planning method for reducing the risk associated with insertion of straight tools in image-guided keyhole neurosurgery. The method quantifies the risks of multiple candidate trajectories and presents them on the outer head surface to assist the neurosurgeon in selecting the safest path. The surgeon can then define and/or revise the trajectory, add a new one using interactive 3D visualization, and obtain a quantitative risk measures. The trajectory risk is evaluateddoi:10.1007/978-3-642-15711-0_57 fatcat:r244uu64cnfudpxtclvrlpxljm
