PURPOSE Sonography has been employed for real-time intraoperative delineation of tumor boundaries during resection of brain tumors. However, the variably hyperechoic appearance of brain edema or gliosis surrounding the brain may interfere with accurate depiction of tumor margins. The goal of the present study was to use sononavigation, which provides coregistration between real-time sonograms and MRI scans, to assess the accuracy of sonographic determination of tumor margins.
