Automated tractography of four white matter fascicles in support of brain tumor surgery

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.
