Summary of "Correlation of Pre-Operative Cranial Nerves Diffusion Tensor Tractography with Intra-operative findings in Surgery of Cerebellopontine Angle Tumors."

Imaging to visualize nerves around tumors preoperatively may help the surgeon to plan surgery and excise the tumor with preservation or improvement in the quality of life. In this prospective study, the authors attempt to correlate preoperative cranial nerves, namely, trigeminal, abducens, facial and vestibulocochlear diffusion tensor tractography and anatomic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with intra-operative findings in cerebellopontine angle tumor surgery.

Probabilistic Tractography to Predict the Position of Cranial Nerves Displaced by Skull Base Tumors: Value for Surgical Strategy Through a Case Series of 62 Patients.

Predicting the displacement of cranial nerves by tumors could make surgery safer and the outcome better. Recent advances in imaging and processing have overcome some of the limits associated with cran...

Imaging of cranial nerves: a pictorial overview.

The human body has 12 pairs of cranial nerves that control motor and sensory functions of the head and neck. The anatomy of cranial nerves is complex and its knowledge is crucial to detect pathologic...

Diffusion tensor tractography to visualize axonal outgrowth and regeneration in a 4-cm reverse autograft sciatic nerve rabbit injury model.

Diffusion tensor tractography (DTT) has recently been shown to accurately detect nerve injury and regeneration. This study assesses whether 7-tesla (7T) DTT imaging is a viable modality to observe axo...

Diffusion tensor imaging and fiber tractography reveal significant micro-structural changes of cervical nerve roots in cervical spondylotic radiculopathy patients.

We sought to delineate the fractional anisotropy (FA) and apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values of cervical spondylotic radiculopathy patients by diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and fiber bundle ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The use of diffusion ANISOTROPY data from diffusion magnetic resonance imaging results to construct images based on the direction of the faster diffusing molecules.

Disorders of one or more of the twelve cranial nerves. With the exception of the optic and olfactory nerves, this includes disorders of the brain stem nuclei from which the cranial nerves originate or terminate.

The nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord, including the autonomic, cranial, and spinal nerves. Peripheral nerves contain non-neuronal cells and connective tissue as well as axons. The connective tissue layers include, from the outside to the inside, the epineurium, the perineurium, and the endoneurium.

Dysfunction of one or more cranial nerves causally related to a traumatic injury. Penetrating and nonpenetrating CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; NECK INJURIES; and trauma to the facial region are conditions associated with cranial nerve injuries.

Benign and malignant neoplasms that arise from one or more of the twelve cranial nerves.
