    Following craniotomy, the decision to resect a brain tumour is based on (1) the surgeon's interpretation of preoperative imaging, such as MRI, (2) correlating the imaging to the surgical field, (3) visual inspection of the surgical field, and (4) palpation thus providing biomechanical...

    The optimal surgical approach for a trigone meningioma is still controversial. Here, we report two patients with trigone meningioma treated successfully via an occipital inter-hemispheric and trans-cortical approach in the lateral semi-prone position. A 53-year-old woman was admitted to a local...

    Objective. Functional information concerning the surrounding brain is mandatory for a good clinical outcome in brain tumour surgery. The value of fMRI to detect the motorcortex and Broca’s area is widely accepted today. If an appropriate paradigm is used, short-term memory areas can be...

    Diffusion tensor tractography provides useful information regarding the surgical strategy for brain tumors. The goal of the present study was to analyze relationships between visual field deficits and the locations of brain tumors compared with optic tracts as visualized by tractography, and...

  • Intraoperative Magnetic Resonance Imaging. Hall, Walter A.; Truwit, Charles L. // Current Medical Imaging Reviews;Nov2010, Vol. 6 Issue 4, p266 

    Neurosurgeons rely on image-guidance to perform safe, successful surgery efficiently and cost-effectively. Neuronavigation involves rigid frame-based or fiducial-based frameless stereotactic guidance that derives its accuracy from computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)....

    Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) induces phosphenes and disrupts visual perception when applied over the occipital pole. Both the underlying mechanisms and the brain structures involved are still unclear. In the first part of this study we show that the masking effect of TMS differs to...

    Background: Bilateral stroke following radiofrequency catheter ablation is an unusual complication and may result in bilateral altitudinal visual field defects. Bilateral altitudinal visual field defects usually result from prechiasmal pathology causing damage to both retinas or optic nerves and...

    The perception of moving objects and our successful interaction with them entail that the visual system integrates shape and motion information about objects. However, neuroimaging studies have implicated different human brain regions in the analysis of visual motion (medial temporal cortex;...
