Preoperative imaging to predict intraoperative changes in tumor-to-corticospinal tract distance: an analysis of 45 cases using high-field intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Preoperative diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) is used to demonstrate corticospinal tract (CST) position. Intraoperative brain shifts may limit preoperative DTI value, and studies characterizing such shifts are lacking. OBJECTIVE To examine tumor characteristics that could predict intraoperative shift in tumor-to-CST distance using high-field… (More)
