AIM This work reports the analysis of the relationship between inferior fronto-occipital fasciculus (IFO), neoplastic lesions and surgical resection, in patients operated for gliomas located in the frontal, temporal and insular lobes of the dominant hemisphere. Aim of the study is evaluating the predictive value of inferior fronto-occipital fasciculus DTI-fiber tracking (FT) for determining the extent of resection preoperatively. METHODS We selected 38 cases affected by lesions located in the… CONTINUE READING
