High-Definition Fiber Tracking: A New Approach to Complex Brain Surgery
Share this on:
Mark D. Boughton, the mayor of Danbury, Conn., developed an epidermoid brain cyst that was impacting both his vision and ability to speak. With the assistance of high-definition fiber tracking, developed at the University of Pittsburgh, Robert M. Friedlander, MD, MA, chair of the UPMC Department of Neurological Surgery, was able to determine the safest, most precise way to reach and remove the tumor, restoring Mayor Boughton’s health. UPMC is leading the way in applying this innovative technology to a variety of complex brain conditions.
