Objective: Brain biopsy is a commonly used method for diagnosing deeply located or generalized intraparenchymal brain lesions and determining the further treatment options. A number of comparative studies have been performed with open surgical biopsy, framed or frameless biopsy methods. In this study, we shared the results of the framless neuronavigation assisted biopsy in our clinic and diagnostic sensitivity of this method.
