Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) tractography enables the in vivo visualization of the course of white matter tracts inside or around a tumor, and it provides the surgeon with important information in resection planning. This study is aimed at assessing the ability of preoperative DTI tractography in predicting the extent of the resection achievable in surgical removal of gliomas. Patients with low-grade gliomas (LGGs; 46) and high-grade gliomas (HGGs; 27) were studied using a 3T scanner… CONTINUE READING
