Abstract

Knowledge of eloquent white matter fascicles is imperative to prevent the loss of sensory processing, linguistic ability and motor skills.
• Diffusion-weighted tractography methods have made it possible to accurately reconstruct these white matter structures in-vivo [1].
• However, few neurosurgeons have access to this information because data analysis requires skilled and experienced personnel [2].
• An automated "turn-key" tractography pipeline is introduced for four eloquent fascicles and evaluated for brain tumor patients.
