Preoperative assessment of surgery using high-quality images can help surgeons to achieve best result of treatment. With the advances in computer technology, interactive multimodality fusion images have been developed. The use of fusion images as a preoperative planning tool is described with its examples in illustrative cases of trigeminal neuralgia and hemifacial spasm microvascular decompression (MVD). Interactive computer graphics such as multimodality fusion method is a useful tool to preoperatively predict the need of bone exposure and configuration of blood vessels with its correlation to cranial nerves in MVD.
