Awake surgery is an effective technique to improve safety in surgical resection of lesions involving eloquent areas of the brain. Intraoperative imaging guidance and neuronavigation are widely applied in neurosurgical procedures. However, data on the application of intraoperative imaging to awake craniotomies are limited. We report our experience with intraoperative computed tomography (i-CT) during awake surgery, focusing on technical feasibility and effectiveness.

Abstract

Awake surgery is an effective technique to improve safety in surgical resection of lesions involving eloquent areas of the brain. Intraoperative imaging guidance and neuronavigation are widely applied in neurosurgical procedures. However, data on the application of intraoperative imaging to awake craniotomies are limited. We report our experience with intraoperative computed tomography (i-CT) during awake surgery, focusing on technical feasibility and effectiveness.
