BACKGROUND: Since the advent of magnetic resonance imaging, metal artifacts have posed an important diagnostic problem in different fields of medicine. However, this has not been systematically studied in patients undergoing surgery for brain tumors.
Intraoperative Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Impact on Brain Tumor Surgery. Michael Schulder, MD, and Peter W. Carmel, MD, DMSc. Background: Refinements in the imaging of intracranial tumors assist neurosurgeons in maximizing resections in a safe manner.
Ex vivo imaging. Tissue specimens were obtained during resection of brain tumors and immediately placed on ice. Imaging was performed using a laboratory set-up of a Sirius 713 Tomograph with its
Purpose: To determine the inter-method agreement between intraoperative ultrasono-graphy and postoperative contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in detecting tumor residue. Material and Methods: After resection was completed...
MRI has been acquired in the standard follow up after surgical resection.
Although the susceptibility artifacts decrease after surgery, it is still difcult to
Over the past decade, intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging (iMRI) to facilitate precise resection of brain tumors has been introduced to the field of brain tumor surgery.
Abstract. The article presents generalized estimation of magnetic resonance imaging diagnostic efficiency in comparison with NLS-graphy in evaluation of surgical intervention extent for brain tumors treatment.
Introduction Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) provides detailed information about brain tumor anatomy, cellular structure and vascular supply, making it an
B: After tumor resection, subcortical stimulation should be done to assess the white matter tracts. C: DTI shows splaying of white matter fibres around the tumor.
