Presurgical Planning With Motion Corrected fMRI Mapping of Motor Cortex in Patients With Cerebral Tumors
The purpose of this study is to determine if fMRI is precise enough to be used in
preoperative decision making for patients who have brain tumors. Before a patient has brain
surgery to have the tumor removed, functional mapping of the brain takes place either
intra-operatively or post operatively after a subdural grid implant has been placed.
Mapping helps the surgeon determine which areas of the brain are responsible for different
important body functions. During this mapping procedure the surgeon determines if they can
safely remove all or part of a brain tumor. The investigators are hoping to show that fMRI
is just as accurate in mapping out different areas of the brain, without having to utilize
an invasive form of brain mapping.
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Determining whether fMRI mapping is as effective as invasive presurgical mapping.
