Exact localization of intracranial tumors is an essential step in any neurosurgical procedure. Many attempts have been made to localize the brain tumors on the scalp. Accurate localization can be achieved with CT guided stereotactic frames, but are neither always available nor simple to use. We describe a simple and accurate method to localize brain tumors using a surface marker with the aid of CT scan. The method is simple, safe and requires no specialized equipment.
