Neuronavigation provides intraoperative orientation to the surgeon and helps in planning a precise surgical
approach to the targetted lesion and defines the surrounding neurovascular structures. Incorporation of the
functional data provided by computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging or ultrasound with
neuronavigation renders neurosergeons to avoid the eloquent areas of the brain during surgery. An intraoperative
images enable radical resection of the lesions, the possibility of immediate control for tumor remnants and
updates of neuronavigation with these data to compensate for brain shift. This study reviews the pointer and
microscope based navigational systems and also highlights the role and to show its indispensibility for a clean
surgery with minimal morbidity.
