OBJECT During neurosurgical interventions, preservation of subcortical axons is as important as preservation of cortical neurons. The goal of this study was to assess the combined use of functional (f) and diffusion-weighted (DW) magnetic resonance (MR) imaging to assist in the preservation of the structure and function of the motor system. METHODS The authors evaluated the combination of fMR imaging and DW MR imaging to detect cortical motor areas with their corresponding pyramidal tracts in… CONTINUE READING
