Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Recently, there has been a burgeoning interest in the use of image-guided navigation to improve the safety and effectiveness of neurosurgical procedures. The intraoperative use of magnetic resonance imaging (MR) provides the most accurate guidance available. This report discusses the hardware and software improvements that have made intraoperative MRI a reality and describes the use of this technology for neurosurgical intraoperative guidance.
