✓The technology of digital image guidance systems has transformed many aspects of neurosurgery, including intracranial tumor surgery, functional neurosurgery, and spinal surgery. Despite the central role of imaging studies in diagnosis and treatment planning, intraoperative image guidance has so far had very limited application to the surgical correction of craniofacial deformities, particularly those associated with craniosynostosis. The authors report an example of the marriage of computer-assisted design methods to a commercially available neurosurgical image-guidance system in the treatment of a case of anterior plagiocephaly due to unilateral coronal synostosis. They discuss the steps that must yet be taken to make this technology applicable to the management of craniosynostosis in infants.
