In this paper, initial clinical data from an intraoperative MR system are compared to calculations made by a three-dimensional finite element model of brain deformation. The preoperative and intraoperative MR data was collected on a patient undergoing a resection of an astrocytoma, grade 3 with non-enhancing and enhancing regions. The image volumes were co-registered and cortical displacements as well as subsurface structure movements were measured retrospectively. These data were then compared… CONTINUE READING
