Introduction: Fluorescence-guided resection (FGR) of brain tumors is an intuitive, practical and emerging technology for visually delineating neoplastic tissue exposed intraoperatively. Image guidance is the standard technique for producing 3-dimensional spatially coregistered information for surgical decision making. Both technologies together are synergistic: the former detects surface fluorescence as a biomarker of the current surgical margin while the latter shows coregistered volumetric…

Estimation of Intraoperative Brain Deformation
TLDR
Details on the important aspects of a computational scheme for estimating intraoperative whole-brain deformation to produce an updated MR image volume and preliminary results using intraoperative fluorescence imaging for validation of model estimation are described.
Coregistered fluorescence-enhanced tumor resection of malignant glioma: relationships between δ-aminolevulinic acid-induced protoporphyrin IX fluorescence, magnetic resonance imaging enhancement, and neuropathological parameters. Clinical article.
TLDR
The finding that preoperative MR image signatures are predictive of intraoperative PpIX fluorescence is of practical importance for identifying candidates for the procedure and provides evidence that a strong relationship exists between tumor aggressiveness and the degree of tissue fluorescence that is observable intraoperatively.
Image Updating for Brain Shift Compensation During Resection.
TLDR
An image-updating system to compensate for brain deformation during resection using a computational model with data assimilation of displacements measured with intraoperative stereovision imaging that maintains TREs less than 2 mm on average is developed.
Simulation of brain tumor resection in image-guided neurosurgery
TLDR
A method to simulate partial or complete tumor resection that incorporates intraoperative volumetric ultrasound (US) and stereovision (SV), and the resulting whole-brain deformation was used to generate uMR, which suggests the potential for its clinical application with further improvement in computational efficiency.
ALA-induced PpIX spectroscopy for brain tumor image-guided surgery
TLDR
Results are promising, since they show that technological improvements in current fluorescence-guided surgical technologies and more biologically relevant approaches are required to take full advantage of fluorescent biomarkers, achieve better tumor identification, increase extent of resection, and subsequently, lead to improve survival and quality of life in patients.
Intraoperative image updating for brain shift following dural opening.
TLDR
The uMR proved to be more accurate in terms of model-data misfit and TRE in the 20 patient cases evaluated relative to pMR, and this study compensated for brain deformation caused by intraoperative dural opening using computational model-based assimilation of iSV cortical surface displacements.
Retractor-induced brain shift compensation in image-guided neurosurgery
TLDR
Results are presented from an initial investigation to simulate retractor-induced brain deformation through a biomechanical finite element (FE) model where whole-brain deformation assimilated from intraoperative data was used to produce uMR for improved accuracy in image guidance.
Photoacoustic-MR Image Registration Based on a Co-Sparse Analysis Model to Compensate for Brain Shift
TLDR
The results proved that intra-operative photoacoustic images could become a promising tool when the brain shift invalidates pre-operative MRI, and the co-sparse analysis model is proposed for photoac acoustic-MR image registration, which can capture the interdependency of the two modalities.
Photoacoustic-MR Image Registration Based on a Co-Sparse Analysis Model to Compensate for Brain Shift
TLDR
Results proved that intra-operative photoacoustic images could become a promising tool when the brain shift invalidated pre-operative MRI, and the co-sparse analysis model is proposed for photoac acoustic -MR image registration, which can capture the interdependency of the two modalities.
