Intraoperative imaging

Using sophisticated MRI-based diffusion tensor imaging, Dr. Brian Nahed and his colleagues study subcortical fibers tracts to plan a surgical approach, which is stimulated intraoperatively to confirm avoidance of the tracts and to test and preserve function. Dr. Nahed uses multi-modality intraoperative imaging and intraoperative brain mapping including intraoperative ultrasound to detect extent of resection of infiltrative brain tumors, and intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging to accurately detect extent of resection in real-time using the ultrasound.
