Diffusion tensor imaging with white matter tractography is one type of brain mapping. It uses state-of-the-art technology to create a 3-D map of your brain. We use this map to locate nerve fibers that control speech, memory, cognition, thought – all of the things that make you, you!
This type of brain mapping helps us:
While diffusion tensor imaging helps us plan a surgery beforehand, other types of brain mapping technology help us during surgery. These technologies work like a GPS system, giving our neurosurgeons real-time guidance deep within the brain.
Brain mapping is a minimally invasive technology used to diagnose and treat:
