This volume considers the application of new technological possibilities in the field. Experts report on their practical experiences with various new methods which are then commented on in more detail in further contributions to give as comprehensive a coverage as possible. Particular consideration is given to: - experience with lasers in both clinical and research contexts - diagnostic and operative ultrasound apparatus, especially microvascular transcranial and intraoperative doppler sonography - the usefulness of various evoked potentials for intraoperative monitoring - newly developed methods allowing the intrathecal and intraventricular administration of medication for serious cases of pain and spasticity - magnetic resonance imaging which has revolutionized the whole diagnosis of brain tumors and vascular deformities and spinal processes. The last section of the volume is devoted to recent research results. This survey of neurosurgical experiences with latest apparatus provides surgeons and clinicians with important new ideas for their activity.
