Preservation of the optic radiations based on comparative analysis of diffusion tensor imaging tractography and anatomical dissection

posted in: New Paper | 0

Is it possible to prevent damage to the visual pathways during neurosurgical operations? In this study in Frontiers Neuroanatomy, Roland Nooij and colleagues compare neuro-imaging to dissection images to find that a good correlation between the two. Furthermore, they suggest ways to define a “Safety Zone” to preserve the optic radiations during surgery.
