The role of intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging for the detection of hemorrhagic complications during surgery for intracerebral lesions an experimental approach.
BACKGROUND: Intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for guided biopsy or microsurgical resection of intracranial lesions is gaining broader acceptance. It is not known whether intraoperative MRI has the potential to detect hemorrhagic complications of these surgical procedures, because scientific research has so far focussed on the signal characteristics of less acute clots. It is the objective of this experimental study to investigate whether MRI can visualise intracerebral blood wit...Expand abstract
