Intracranial neurosurgery guided by functional imaging



Intracranial neurosurgery guided by functional imaging



Surgical Neurology. 42(6): 523-530



Neurosurgery on eloquent cortex entails important risks of functional deficits complicating aggressive lesion resection. In this study, advanced biomagnetic functional imaging of somatosensory and motor cortex combined with surface rendered magnetic resonance imaging displays including vascular anatomy were used in conjunction with a new nonintrusive intraoperative guided instrumentation system to resect a tumor in eloquent cortex. Intraoperative verification of the accuracy of preoperative motor localization demonstrated highly accurate results comparing direct stimulation and noninvasive presurgical mapping. The applicability of surface rendered combined functional and anatomic maps of cortex is directly evident on comparison of preoperative computer images and intraoperative pictures. This combination of new technologies has a significant potential for reduced risk and improved outcome in neurosurgery of eloquent cortex.
