Interactive Diffusion Tensor Tractography Visualization for Neurosurgical Planning
This video shows use of the interactive diffusion tensor tractography tool to review tracts for Patient 5 with left temporal lobe metastatic adenocarcinoma. The authors first demonstrate use of the seeding shell method to explore all tracts within a certain variable distance from the tumor margin. Next, the dynamic seedpoint method is used to precisely select several tracts of interest including the corticospinal tract as well as peri-tumoral tracts including the arcuate fasciculus.
