Intraoperative MRI in Neurosurgery

Intraoperative MRI in Neurosurgery
Financially supported by the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research

In this SSF-Med-X project magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and biomedical optic systems will be used together for combating neurosurgical disorders. Focus is set on brain tumors and brain trauma.

Multimodal guidance in neurosurgery

A new 3T MRI camera is placed next to a new neurosurgical operating room, at the neurointensive care unit, the Department of Neurosurgery, Linköping University Hospital. It will be used for intraoperative investigations of the tumor border during resection, biopsies and for imaging of the brain blood flow in neurointensive care. Novel MRI protocols and fiber-optic systems are developed and translated for integration with the MRI use in the neurosurgical and neurointensive are settings. The project is grounded on existing expertise in neuroengineering, neurosurgery, neuroradiology, neuropathology, MR-physics, and medical imaging.
