OBJECT A multimodal neuronavigation system using metabolic images with PET and anatomical images from MR images is described here for glioma surgery. The efficacy of the multimodal neuronavigation system was evaluated by comparing the results with that of the conventional navigation system, which routinely uses anatomical images from MR and CT imaging as guides. METHODS Thirty-three patients with cerebral glioma underwent 36 operations with the aid of either a multimodal or conventional… CONTINUE READING
