Optimising Surgical Resection in Low Grade Glioma Patients
This seminar will explore current advances in surgical techniques and technology that can enhance the extent of resection in low grade gliomas, such as awake craniotomy and intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring. The seminar will also explore the role of functional MRI imaging and neuro-navigation, as well as intraoperative MRI and ultrasound, in achieving maximum safe resection.
