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 tumour 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.
