The Brain Tumor Program
The Brain Tumor Program is a pioneer in the use of Functional Image-Guided Surgery (FIGS), a technique that combines Functional MRI (fMRI) with frameless stereotactic surgery to optimize the safety and efficacy of treatment for patients with tumors located in the cerebral hemispheres.
This pre-operative MRI image shows a 64-year-old woman who was experiencing speech difficulty and right-sided weakness due to a large cystic tumor.
In this image, taken during surgery, the tumor is exposed.
This image shows the stealth station images. Using this technology, the tumor was removed and the patient had a full recovery.
