    Abstract

    The difference in angles between horizontal section of Schaltebrand & Bailey's atlas and horizontal section of CT based on cantho-meatal line is only 3.5 to 5.5 degrees. Therefore, the horizontal section of Schaltenbrand & Bailey's atlas can be utilized for analysis of the horizontal section of CT scan, because the basal ganglia are located approximately in the center of the cranial cavity. The lesions at the basal ganglia with superimposing technique utilizing the relation between horizontal section of Schaltenbrand & Bailey's atlas and the analogue view of CT can be identified anatomically.
