Abstract

Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) is an advanced imaging technique that helps to establish the topographic-anatomical relationship of tumours with the surrounding white matter tracts. Intra-operatively when used with neuro-navigation, it helps in minimizing injury to functional brain parenchyma, decreasing the risk of post-operative neurological deficits. In this review, we have assessed the efficacy of DTI for brain tumour resection.
