New fMRI technology making brain tumor surgery safer

on a 3 Tesla scanner at West Image, a Cincinnati imaging facility owned by Set Shababian, M.D. “We perform various language, motor and vision tasks with the patient in the MRI scanner,?Dr. Leach explained.

FMRI scanning takes approximately 75 minutes, about 30 minutes longer than traditional MRI. The DTI scan, which takes five minutes, is performed in the same setting.

Dr. Leach processes those images, highlighting the location of speech and movement areas and white matter tracts. He also highlights the tumor location, then imports all of the information into BrainLAB’s navigation software at University Hospital.

The Neuroscience Institute, a regional center of excellence at the University of Cincinnati and University Hospital, is dedicated to patient care, research, education, and the development of new treatments for stroke, brain and spinal tumors, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, trauma, Alzheimer’s disease, and Parkinson’s disease.
