Abstract

Diffusely infiltrating tumors of midline structures (corpus callosum, basal ganglia, brainstem) are regarded to be difficult for surgical planning mainly because of poor differentiation between solid tumor tissue and peritumoral edema by computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Encouraged by the positive results of transcranial color-coded real-time sonography (TCCS) in brain tumor localization [1, 2], we applied this technique to stereotactic biopsies pre- and intraoperatively to investigate its potential in preoperative planning and intraoperative real-time imaging monitoring.
