Real-Time Registration of Volumetric Brain MRI by Biomechanical Simulation of Deformation During Image Guided Neurosurgery

The key challenge faced by a neurosurgeon is the removal from the brain of as much tumor tissue as possible while minimizing the removal of healthy tissue and avoiding the disruption of critical anatomical structures. They developed an algorithm to create enhanced visualizations of tumor and critical brain structures by aligning preoperatively acquired image data with intraoperative images of the patient's brain during surgery.
