Summary/Abstract: Introduction: In planning of neurosurgical operations is very crucial the precision in drawing target structure and definition the near risk structures. Shape and location of the target structure before the operation can be previewed via visualization, which help in deciding which modality of surgical operation is the safest therapy for patient. Core: Planning of stereotactic surgery is performed by CT and MRI imaging, which are transferred after their merging into the virtual planning system called "TomoCon". Visualization and virtual planning greatly assist the subjectivity of hand drawing contour by the neurosurgeon for a 3D model of brain structures for optimization of treatment. For this reason, we proposed to use virtual reality in the planning of neurosurgical operations. Using the stereoscopic view of the CT and MRI slices in 3D model, we make better corrections in the segmentation phase of creating the 3D model of brain structures. The new project will include streaming video and 3D data streaming for real-time rendering via web interface and data networking so that user image interaction in the multi-user environment is synchronized with voice transmission
