The Brain Tumor Program
FIGS offers non-invasive preoperative assessment and planning for brain tumor surgery. This technology also is being applied to stereotactic radiosurgery, where FIGS’ precision tremendously reduces the chance that radiation will be applied to eloquent areas of the brain.
These images illustrate the case of a 34-year-old male with a recurrent benign brain tumor (a low grade glioma).This patient had previously had a biopsy and radiation treatment at another facility and was referred to the Brain Tumor Program for follow-up treatment. This image is a preoperative MRI.
This image, taken using the Stealth Station technology shows the location of the motor cortex which is behind the tumor. Because of the precision of the brain mapping, the motor cortex and the tumor are distinguishable.
