Abstract: A non-invasive / minimally invasive technique is being used for tracking and localising the variable targets in the brain. Brain tumours are considered to be the major targets in the brain and are always insensitive to the treatments. During neuro surgery, they cause some slight movement of the brain, which is pulsatile in nature. Tracking techniques must be able to coordinate with the movement of the brain.
