MRI Tractography - Brain Tumor
Recently when reporting a brain MRI of a patient after tumor operation I came across beautiful functional and MRI Tractography images showing corticospinal tracts relation to the brain tumor in the frontal lobe. The interpretation of this study was that most ventral parts of the corticospinal tracts are located near tumor's dorsal part and the arcuate fasciculus was unaffected. Of course there were more images showing the arcuate fasciculus in more detail. The exam also included functional (fMRI) study showing motoric and speech locations. I'm not expert in this field but I wanted to show you that we are moving closer to using such functional studies in daily practice.
